CIS 08-508 Radiological Protection Act, 1991 (Ionising Radiation) Order, 2000 [Ireland]
Regulations (effective 13 May 2000) that give effect to Council Directive 96/29/EURATOM (see CIS 96-1943) and Council Directive 90/641/Euratom (see CIS 94-18). They apply to all practices involving a risk from ionizing radiation emanating from an artificial source or from a natural radiation source in cases where natural radionuclides are being or have been processed in view of their radioactive, fissile or fertile properties. Contents: interpretation and scope; regulation of practices and work activities; justification, optimization and dose limitation; estimation of effective dose; protection of exposed workers, apprentices and students; work activities involving natural radiation sources; radiation protection of the population for practices in normal circumstances; intervention and emergency preparedness. The Radiological Protection Act, 1991 (General Control of Radioactive Substances, Nuclear Devices and Irradiating Apparatus) Order, 1993 is revoked. Seven schedules, including: dose limits (20mSv for exposed workers in a period of 12 months, with various additional qualifications for specific groups); reporting criteria depending on threshold amounts of specific radioactive susbstances.

CIS 73-995
Ministry of Labour
Factories ionising radiations (unsealed radioactive substances) Regulations, 1972
The purpose of these regulations is to prescribe measures which must be taken to ensure the adequate protection of persons employed in factories and other places, to which the Republic of Ireland Factories Act 1955 applies, against ionizing radiations arising from unsealed radioactive substances. Maximum radiation doses and maximum permissible levels of contamination are set out in two schedules, and a third schedule gives a classification of radionucleides approved by the Minister for Labour, to be used for the purposes of these regulations are listed.

CIS 73-991
Ministry of Labour
Factories ionising radiations (sealed sources) Regulations, 1972
These regulations prescribe the measures which must be taken to ensure the adequate protection of persons employed in places to which the Factories Act, 1955 applies, against ionizing radiations arising from: radioactive substances sealed in a container or bonded wholly within material; and from any machine or apparatus, including irradiating apparatus, that is intended to produce ionizing radiations in which charged particles are accelerated by a voltage of not less than 5kV. Maximum permissible radiation doses are prescribed, and approved forms for records and reports, etc. are listed. Basic principles of protection are laid down as well as arrangements for medical supervision, radiological supervision, monitoring, organization of work within the radiation area, etc.
