This note is not part of the regulations, but is intended to indicate their general effect.
These regulations, which come into force on 1 January 1999, increase the fees payable for applications for the issue or renewal of licences under the Radiation Protection Act 1965 to use an irradiating material or apparatus.
Since 1992, the fee has been $50. The new fees are $300 for licences defined as complex licences, $190 for licences defined as simple licences, and $225 for all other licences.
In addition, a further fee of $180 is prescribed for applications likely to be referred to the Radiation Protection Advisory Council. This is intended to cover the costs of referring them to the Council, and must be refunded if any application is dealt with without reference to the Council.
All fees are inclusive of goods and services tax.
