New Ionising Radiation Regulations: What does it mean for me?

16th February 2018  09:00 AM - 05:00 PM (GMT+00:00) GMT



Due to phenomenal demand we are repeating our sold out ‘New Ionising Radiation Regulations: What does it mean for me?’ event, this time in Manchester on 16 February 2018.

This upgraded event replaces our hugely popular annual IRMER Update. It has been designed to provide an invaluable multi-disciplinary forum in which to assess the impact of the new ionising radiation regulations (IRR17 and IRMER17) coming into force in early 2018. Hear the experts view on how the regulations should be applied in practice and learn how to best prepare yourself and your department for their arrival.

Educational aims:

  • To raise awareness of the implications of the new ionising radiation regulations (IRR17 and IRMER17)
  • To assist attendees in preparing for the impact of the regulations on local practice
