                     (d)  a facility (other than a nuclear installation) used for the production, processing, use, storage, management or disposal of:

                              (i)  unsealed sources for which the result worked out using the steps mentioned in subregulation (2) is greater than 106; or

                             (ii)  sealed sources for which the result worked out using the steps mentioned in subregulation (2) is greater than 109.

Note:          A prescribed radiation facility is a controlled facility, see the definition of controlled facility in section 13 of the Act.

             (2)  For subparagraphs (1)(d)(i) and (ii), the steps are:

                     (a)  divide the activity of each nuclide in the sources by the activity value mentioned in an item in the table in clause 2 of Schedule 2 for the nuclide; and

                     (b)  if there is more than 1 nuclide in the sources—add the result for each nuclide worked out under paragraph (a).

             (3)  However, the CEO may declare, in writing, on a case by case basis, that a facility is not a prescribed radiation facility.

Note:          A decision to refuse to make a declaration is reviewable under regulation 66.

          (3A)  The CEO must not make a declaration under subregulation (3) unless the CEO is satisfied that:

                     (a)  the facility does not pose an unacceptable potential hazard to the health and safety of people or to the environment; and

                     (b)  it would be inappropriate, in all the circumstances, for the facility to be a prescribed radiation facility.

             (4)  The CEO must publish the declaration in the Gazette as soon as practicable after making it.

6AA  Prescribed legacy site

                   For the definition of prescribed legacy site in section 13 of the Act, the place known as the Little Forest Legacy Site, as shown labelled as “LFLS” on site plan drawing No. AO SK 127039 revision G dated 1 July 2015, Little Forest Road, Lucas Heights, in the local government area of Sutherland, Parish of Holsworthy, County of Cumberland, erected on part of the land contained in Certificate of Title folio identifier 1/106967, is prescribed.

                     (a)  a holder of a licence, or a person covered by a licence, can comply with the licence without taking action that would constitute unlawful discrimination under the Sex Discrimination Act 1984; or

                     (b)  a holder of a licence, or a person covered by a licence, who cannot comply with the licence without taking action that would constitute unlawful discrimination under the Sex Discrimination Act 1984 is exempted, under section 44 of that Act, from its operation.

Division 5.2Dose limits

57  Purpose of Division 5.2

                   For paragraph 85(2)(a) of the Act, this Division prescribes practices and procedures to be followed, and measures to be taken, in relation to dose limits by controlled persons in relation to activities relating to controlled facilities, and in relation to dealings with controlled apparatus or controlled material.

58  Prescribed practice

             (1)  The holder of a facility licence for a controlled facility must ensure that the doses to which a person is exposed, inside or in connection with the facility, do not exceed the effective dose limits mentioned in regulation 59, and the equivalent dose limits mentioned in regulation 62.

             (3)  The holder of a source licence for dealing with controlled apparatus or controlled material must ensure that the doses to which a person is exposed while the source in the apparatus or material is under the holder’s control do not exceed the effective dose limits mentioned in regulation 59, and the equivalent dose limits mentioned in regulation 62.

             (4)  The holder of a licence must ensure that radiation protection and safety of the following relating to the licence are optimised in order to achieve the outcome mentioned in subregulation (4A):

                     (a)  controlled material;

                     (b)  controlled apparatus (other than apparatus prescribed by these regulations that produce harmful non‑ionizing radiation when energised);

                     (c)  a controlled facility.

          (4A)  For subregulation (4), the outcome is that the following are as low as reasonably achievable after taking into account economic and societal factors:

                     (a)  the magnitude of individual doses;

                     (b)  the number of people who are exposed;

                     (c)  the likelihood of incurring exposures to radiation.

             (5)  The optimisation of radiation protection and safety mentioned in subregulation (4) must be in accordance with source‑related dose constraints established in accordance with the Planned Exposure Code and agreed by the CEO.

             (6)  For apparatus prescribed by these regulations that produce harmful non‑ionising radiation when energised, the holder of a licence must ensure that exposure to people is kept to the lowest level that can be achieved, consistent with best practice.

59  Effective dose limits

             (1)  The effective dose limit for occupational exposure is 20 mSv annually, averaged over 5 consecutive years.

             (2)  However, the effective dose for a person subject to occupational exposure must not, in a year, be greater than 50 mSv.

             (3)  The effective dose limit for public exposure is 1 mSv annually.

             (4)  The effective dose limit for an unborn child is to be consistent with the effective dose limit for public exposure.

Note:          See also the Planned Exposure Code for the obligation to consider additional controls in relation to female employees who are pregnant.

60  Effective doses

             (1)  For regulation 59, a person’s effective dose for a relevant period is the sum of:

                     (a)  the effective dose that the person receives, from external exposure, during the relevant period; and

                     (b)  the person’s committed effective dose, received from intakes during the relevant period, for the next 50 years.

             (2)  However, if the person is under 18, the committed effective dose must be worked out on the basis of the number of years calculated by subtracting the person’s age, at the time of the calculation, from 70.

             (3)  For subregulation (1), a relevant period is:

                     (a)  for a controlled person—5 years; or

                     (b)  for a member of the public—1 year.

61  Dealings with controlled apparatus generating non‑ionizing radiation

                   The holder of a source licence must ensure that all dealings with controlled apparatus generating non‑ionizing radiation comply with the appropriate exposure limits set out in the standards and codes mentioned in the table in clause 1 of Schedule 1.

62  Annual equivalent dose limit

             (1)  For occupational exposure, the equivalent dose limit to the lens of the eye is 20 mSv annually, averaged over 5 consecutive years.

          (1A)  However, the equivalent dose to the lens of the eye for a person subject to occupational exposure must not, in a year, be greater than 50 mSv.

          (1B)  The equivalent dose to the lens of the eye for a person subject to public exposure must not, in a year, be greater than 15 mSv.

             (2)  For occupational exposure, the annual equivalent dose limit to the hands and feet is 500 mSv.

             (3)  The annual equivalent dose limit to the skin is:

                     (a)  for occupational exposure—500 mSv; and

                     (b)  for public exposure—50 mSv.

             (4)  The annual equivalent dose limit to the skin applies to the average dose received by any 1 cm2 of skin.
