Radiation Protection – Basic Safety Standards
Council Directive 2013/59/Euratom is laying down basic safety standards against the dangers arising from exposure to ionising radiation. The new BSS Directive introduces and changes a number of requirements that affect healthcare professionals in radiology, for example regarding justification of exposure, patient information, responsibilities for radiation safety, dose reporting, and diagnostic reference levels.
EU Member States must transpose the BSS Directive into national law by 6 February 2018.
