Environmental Radiation

Environmental Radiation

We implement Government policy on environmental 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.
