Radiological Protection Institute of Ireland

The Radiological Protection Institute of Ireland (RPII) is the national institute in the Republic of Ireland responsible for ionising radiation and radioactive contamination matters since its establishment in April 1992 by the [http://www.irishstatutebook.ie/1991_9.html Radiological Protection Act, 1991] . As of 2007 it is also responsible for non-ionising radiation, a role previously delegated to the Commission for Communications Regulation. The institute is also the successor to the Nuclear Energy Board and as the Irish Government no is longer pursuing a nuclear power option the Nuclear Energy Board was formally wound up by the same 1991 Act of the Oireachtas. The institute is currently responsible to the Minister for the Environment, Heritage and Local Government.
