Licence for the use of radiation source
The licence for the use of radiation source must be acquired for:
- sealed source of radiation, where the activity or specific activity by 10 times exceeds the level of exemption for the activity or specific activity (Table 1 of the Regulation on Radiation Activities, Official Gazette of the Republic of Slovenia, no. 48/04 and 9/06);
- device with sealed source of radiation where the speed of dosage, measured 10 cm from any access surface of the device where the sealed source of radiation is located, exceeds 1 µSv/h;
- electrical device that operates at a voltage higher than 30 kV, except for electronic microscopes;
- unsealed source of radiation, the activity of which exceeds the level of exemption (Table 1 of the Regulation on radiation activities, Official Gazette of the Republic of Slovenia, no. 48/04 and 9/06).
If there are changes at the source of radiation or at the use of the source of radiation, the licence for the use of the source of radiation must be acquired before the use of the source if:
- this involves an intervention or change at the source of radiation that can impact the conditions or protection against ionising radiation,
- the source of radiation that is used as immoveable source is relocated to another room of the same facility or to another object,
- if an x-ray pipe was replaced on the x-ray device.
The licences for the use of the radiation source of confirmation on the entry in the register of radiation sources do not have to be acquired for ionising fire alarms containing radionuclide Am-241 with the activity not exceeding 3 MBq, if the speed of dose 10 cm from any access surface of the ionising fire alarm does not exceed 1 µSv/h.
The licence to use the source of radiation is issued for the envisaged period of activity duration, but not for more than 10 years.
