Radiation Protection Adviser (RPA) / Radioactive Waste Adviser (RWA) for a broad range of sources

In the UK we provide advice to clients who range from the smallest to the largest users of ionising radiation. Our advice covers x-ray sources of all energy ranges (i.e. research machines, quality assurance, baggage security systems, cargo scanners, sterilisation / industrial processing, linacs and other accelerators). As RPA we are usually appointed under the Ionising Radiations Regulations 1999 (IRR99) which defines the matters for which we must be consulted.

As a RWA our advice ranges from the small school source to the highest activity sources (i.e. radiometric gauges, nuclear research reactors, gamma irradiation facilities, process control, medical). Our advice therefore also covers the Environmental Permitting (England & Wales) Regulations 2016, the Radioactive Substances Act 1993 (in Scotland) and transport regulations. We also provide RPA / RWA advice for users of NORM (naturally occuring radioactive materials).

Outside the UK we provide an international radiation training and advisory service as a Qualified Expert.

Practical Radiation Protection Services

To complement our advisory role Ionactive also provides the complete range of practical services including radiation and contamination monitoring, onsite gamma spectrometry, leak testing, risk assessment, contingency planning, monitor testing, critical examinations and decommissioning support.
