(i)the apparatus is of a type approved by the Executive;
(ii)the apparatus is constructed in the form of a sealed source;
(iii)the apparatus does not under normal operating conditions cause a dose rate of more than 1μSvh−1 at a distance of 0.1m from any accessible surface; and
(iv)conditions for the disposal of the apparatus have been specified by the appropriate Agency;
(d)the operation of any electrical apparatus to which these Regulations apply other than apparatus referred to in sub-paragraph (e) below provided that—
(i)the apparatus is of a type approved by the Executive; and
(ii)the apparatus does not under normal operating conditions cause a dose rate of more than 1μSvh−1 at a distance of 0.1m from any accessible surface;
(e)the operation of—
(i)any cathode ray tube intended for the display of visual images; or
(ii)any other electrical apparatus operating at a potential difference not exceeding 30kV,
provided that the operation of the tube or apparatus does not under normal operating conditions cause a dose rate of more than 1μSvh−1 at a distance of 0.1m from any accessible surface;
(f)where the work involves material contaminated with radioactive substances resulting from authorised releases which the appropriate Agency has declared not to be subject to further control.
2. In this Schedule, “the appropriate Agency” has the meaning assigned to it by section 47(1) of the Radioactive Substances Act 1993(1).
