Radioactive waste

Radioactive waste has special storage, handling and treatment requirements.

The principal legislation for the control of radioactive materials in NSW is the Radiation Control Act 1990 (the Radiation Act) and Radiation Control Regulation 2013. The Radiation Act requires those who use, own, store, possess, sell or give away regulated radiation material to hold a radiation licence. The Radiation Act also controls the disposal of such material.
