Source Security Plans
A security assessment should be performed against the criteria identified in the ARPANSA Code of Practice for Security of Radioactive Sources (RPS 11).
Radiation Services WA can assist with determination of whether sources – or an aggregate of sources in one location – are classified as ‘security enhanced’ or not and advise on what an appropriate level of security will be.
Use and Storage of sources categorised as Security Enhanced (Cat 1, 2 or 3) must be in accordance with an endorsed Source Security Plan and the Transport of these sources must be performed under an endorsed Source Transport Security Plan.
Your Annual Report should document the current radiation management status of your companies operations including current inventory (and movements) of radiation sources, operational achievements, events and incidents in the previous 12 months and it should detail the findings of your Annual Audit. Specific requirements for annual reporting vary depending on the type of radiation source you are using.
Should Radiation Services WA assist your site by performing annual Compliance Auditing, we are able to meet your Annual Reporting requirements efficiently by producing a Site Visit Report that incorporates all the key criteria. Site-time permitting, our Radiation Protection Advisors are generally able to combine site activities with an informal review of your site Radiation Management Plan, offering further value to our clients.
