Radiation Safety Bill

Proposed amendments

Hon Annette King, in Committee, to move the following amendments:

Clause 1

In clause 1 (page 5, line 3), replace “Radiation Safety Act” with “Ionising Radiation Safety Act”.

Clause 98

In clause 98(2), definition of radioactive material (page 56, lines 7 to 8), replace “Radiation Safety Act” with “Ionising Radiation Safety Act”.

Schedule 5

In Schedule 5 (page 80, line 4 to page 82, line 5), replace “Radiation Safety Act” with “Ionising Radiation Safety Act” in each place it occurs.

Explanatory note

This Supplementary Order Paper amends the title clause changing the title to the Ionising Radiation Safety Act 2014. This better reflects the content of the Bill by specifying the type of radiation regulated. Non-ionising radiation sources such as microwaves and cellphone towers are regulated through standards and are not addressed by this Bill. Consequential amendments to clause 98 and Schedule 5 are also made.
