REGULATORS & TRAINING AUTHORITIES 

The Radiological Council is an independent statutory authority appointed under the Radiation Safety Act in Western Australia to assist the  Minister for Health  to protect public health and to maintain safe practices in the use of radiation.

The Radiation Safety Act regulates the keeping and use of radioactive substances, irradiating apparatus (eg x-ray equipment) and certain electronic products (eg lasers, sun-tanning units and UV transilluminators). The Act applies to both ionising and non-ionising radiation. Registration and licensing are the principal means by which the use of radiation is regulated. Daily administration of the Act is handled by personnel of the Radiation Health Branch acting through the Secretary of the Council. The Branch has separate responsibilities to the Department of Health and is under the direction of the Managing Health Physicist. 

The EPA has certain regulatory powers under the Act and Regulation which include regulating the use, sale, giving away, disposal, storage, possession, transport, installation, maintenance or repair,  remediation or clean-up of regulated material (radioactive substances, ionising radiation apparatus, non-ionising radiation apparatus of a kind prescribed by the Regulations and sealed source devices) in NSW.

The Radiation Health Unit is the government's radiation safety agency. It has statewide policy, licensing and legislative responsibility for radiation health standards and radiation safety. The Radiation Health Unit is part of the Prevention Division. It provides scientific and technical advice to all  Queenslanders on all ionising and non-ionising radiation safety matters in the interest of minimising health risks and protection of the environment.

The Environmental Health Branch is committed to reducing the amount of disease in Northern Territory communities caused by physical, chemical, biological and radiological factors in the environment.                                                    

Environmental Health sits within the broader area of public health. The branch is involved in the assessment,   correction, control, and prevention of environmental factors adversely affecting human health.

 The Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety was created on 1 July 2017 with the amalgamation of the Departments of Mines and Petroleum and Commerce. These structural changes are part of the WA Government’s State-wide public sector reforms. The new department will regulate the mining, building and construction industry with an elevated focus on worker safety. It will also assume consumer protection responsibilities.
