For your application to be assessed, you must provide certified copies (where applicable, such as for radiation safety training or academic qualification certificates) of documentation to show that you meet licence prerequisites, such as:
- degrees or certificates of training
- relevant professional memberships accreditations or registrations
- a radiation licence held in another state or territory
- evidence of radiation related training courses
- a Transport Management Plan (TMP) if you are applying to transport radioactive materials
- any other documents relevant to your application
Medical diagnostic and therapeutic use of radiation - licence holders need to register with the appropriate health professional board such as the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA).
Veterinary practitioners and veterinary surgeons - licence holders need to register with the ACT Veterinary Practitioners Board. If the ACT Veterinary Practitioners Board is recognising the applicant’s current registration in another Australian state or territory under the National Recognition of Veterinary Registration (NRVR), then the licence application must include a letter from the ACT Veterinary Practitioners Board confirming this.
Please note that all applications must be accompanied by photographic identification.
If your work includes transporting sources you need to prepare a Transport Management Plan (TMP) and ensure that your radiation licence specifically permits this as a dealing.
The TMP may be part of your Radiation Management Plan or it may be a separate document.
