The RPII is the competent authority in relation to the protection of workers and members of the public from the harmful effects of exposure to ionising radiation. By law, all practices which use radioactive sources and/or irradiating apparatus (such as an X-ray unit) must hold a valid licence from the RPII, unless they have been exempted.
