Australia has a long history of successfully managing the use of radiation technologies. There are well established safety standards in Australia to protect the community and the environment from the harmful effects of radiation.

It is important that Australia’s framework for radiation safety is flexible and responsive to future challenges and emerging technologies. It is essential that all Australians benefit from technologies that use radiation and have confidence in their safety.

The draft National Strategy is a main step towards improving consistency in managing radiation safety across Australia. It provides a more cohesive and harmonised approach by bringing together the existing elements of radiation safety across the country.
