Regulation 2(1)

SCHEDULE 1DOSES OF IONISING RADIATION WITHIN THE MEANING OF “RADIATION EMERGENCY”

1.  An effective dose of 5 mSv in the period of one year immediately following the radiation emergency.

2.  Without prejudice to paragraph 1—

(a)an equivalent dose for the lens of the eye of 15 mSv in the period of one year immediately following the radiation emergency; and

(b)an equivalent dose for the skin of 50 mSv in the period of one year immediately following the radiation emergency over 1cm2 area of skin, regardless of the area exposed.

3.  In this Schedule—

(a)any reference to an effective dose means the sum of the effective dose to the whole body from external radiation and the committed effective dose from internal radiation;

(b)any reference to equivalent dose to a human tissue or organ includes the committed equivalent dose to that tissue or organ from internal radiation;

(c)“external radiation” means, in relation to a person, ionising radiation coming from outside the body of that person; and

(d)“internal radiation” means, in relation to a person, ionising radiation coming from inside the body of that person.

PART IIQuantity ratios for more than one radionuclide

1.  For the purpose of regulation 3(2), the quantity ratio for more than one radionuclide is the sum of the quotients of the quantity of a radionuclide present Qp divided by the quantity of that radionuclide specified in the appropriate column of Part I of this Schedule Qlim, namely—

2.  In any case where the isotopic composition of a radioactive substance is not known or is only partially known, the quantity ratio for that substance shall be calculated by using the values specified in the appropriate column in Part 1 for `other radionuclides not listed above' for any radionuclide that has not been identified or where the quantity of a radionuclide is uncertain, unless the employer can show that the use of some other value is appropriate in the circumstances of a particular case, when he may use that value.

Regulation 3(1)

SCHEDULE 3MASSES OF FISSILE MATERIAL

For the purpose of regulation 3(1), the specified mass of a fissile material shall be—

(a)plutonium as Pu 239 or Pu 241 or as a mixture of plutonium isotopes containing Pu 239 or Pu 241—150 grams;
(b)uranium as U233—150 grams;
(c)uranium enriched in U 235 to more than 1% but not more than 5%—500 grams;(r)
(d)uranium enriched in U 235 to more than 5%—250 grams.

PART I

Table of radionuclides

Radionuclide name, symbolRadionuclide formQuantity (Bq)
Note 1: Values include contributions from daughter nuclides with half-lives less than 10 days.
Note 2: These values apply only to compounds of uranium that take the chemical form of UF6, UO2F2 and UO2(NO3)2 in both normal and accident conditions of transport.
Note 3: These values apply only to compounds of uranium that take the chemical form of O3, UF4, UCl4 and hexavalent compounds other than those specified in Note 2 above in both normal and accident conditions of transport.
Note 4: These values apply to all compounds of uranium other than those specified in Notes 2 and 3 above.
Note 5: These values apply to unirradiated uranium only.
Note 6: In the case of radionuclides not specified elsewhere in this Part, the quantity specified in this entry is to be used unless the Executive has approved some other quantity for that radionuclide.

SCHEDULE 8PRINCIPLES AND PURPOSES OF INTERVENTION

PART IPrinciples to which emergency plans shall have regard

An emergency plan drawn up pursuant to regulation 7, 8 or 9 respectively shall, in so far as it applies to any radiation emergency, be drawn up having regard to the following principles—

(a)the intervention shall be undertaken only if the reduction in the detriment due to the radiation resulting from the radiation emergency is sufficient to justify the harm and costs, including the social costs, of the intervention; and

(b)the form, scale and duration of the intervention shall be carried out in such a way as to ensure that exposures to radiation are kept as low as is reasonably practicable so that the benefit of the reduction in health detriment less the detriment associated with the intervention will be maximised.

PART IIPurposes of intervention

The purposes of intervention referred to in regulations 7(5), 8(6) and regulation 9(11) are—

(a)reducing or stopping at source direct radiation and the emission of radionuclides;

(b)reducing the transfer of radioactive substances to individuals from the environment; and
