Environmental Radiation

We implement Government policy on radiation issues at National, European and International levels. This includes:

  • ensuring Ireland's nuclear policy is co-ordinated between various Government Departments and Agencies
  • dealing with UK consultations on nuclear matters
  • putting forward Ireland's position at international fora
  • transposing EU Directives and ensuring Ireland complies with international treaty obligations
  • responsibility for the potential health effects of non-ionising radiation including electromagnetic fields.
  • working with the Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Radiological Protection.
