The keeping and use of radioactive materials and the
accumulation and disposal of radioactive waste is controlled
through the Radioactive
Substances Act 1993 which is enforced on behalf of the
Environment Agency in England and Wales.
Anybody who keeps or uses radioactive materials, including
mobile apparatus, must apply for registration under the Act.
Copies of all applications, authorisations and registrations
under the Act and other relevant documentation, including details
of enforcement or prohibition notices and records of any
convictions, are required to be made publicly available by the
Environment Agency in the form of a public register. This
information is available on the
Environment Agency website.
The information is fully searchable and companies can be traced
by entering information in various fields, including postcode,
town, company name or licence, registration or permit number.
