Research Studies which involve exposure to medical ionising radiation fall under the scope of S.I. No. 256/2018 - European Union (Basic Safety Standards for Protection Against Dangers Arising from Medical Exposure to Ionising Radiation) Regulations 2018
This Sample Checklist (drafted November 2020) may provide a useful starting point for assessing compliance with S.I No 256/2018.
The Beaumont Hospital Radiation Safety Committee (RSC) will make documentation available shortly for the purposes of obtaining RSC approval to conduct research and clinical trials in Beaumont Hospital.
National Research Ethics Committee
A National Research Ethics Committee - Ionising Radiation (NREC-IR) is at planning stages.
