New Zealand Parliament Pāremata Aotearoa

Public submissions have been called on the Radiation Safety Bill.

The closing date for submissions was Wednesday, 22 April 2015

The Radiation Safety Bill seeks to repeal and replace the Radiation Protection Act 1965. The bill will provide a legislative framework for radiation safety that responds effectively to the range of technological, scientific, and organisational changes that have occurred over the last five decades while the current Act has been in force. As well as addressing both existing and emerging risks relating to radiation safety and security, the bill will enable ratification of key relevant international instruments.

The bill is available online from the `Related links´ panel.

The committee requires 2 copies of each submission if made in writing. Those wishing to include any information of a private or personal nature in a submission should first discuss this with the clerk of the committee, as submissions are usually released to the public by the committee. Those wishing to appear before the committee to speak to their submissions should state this clearly and provide a daytime telephone contact number. To assist with administration please supply your postcode and an email address if you have one.

Further guidance on making a submission can be found from the Making a Submission to a Parliamentary Select Committee link in the `Related documents´ panel.
