The GSR Part 3 explicitly states that "The regulatory
body shall establish and enforce requirements for safety assessment, and the
person or organization responsible for a facility or activity that gives rise
to radiation risks shall conduct an appropriate safety assessment of this
facility or activity.”.
IAEA-developed training material on safety assessment based
on GSR Part 4, which comprises the generally applicable requirements to be fulfilled in safety assessment for facilities and
activities excluding nuclear installations, with special attention paid to
defence in depth, quantitative analyses and the application of a graded approach to the ranges of
facilities and of activities that are addressed. The training material is available for download in English and Spanish.
The training material, including thirteen modules and eight
exercises, is useful to employers, licensees and registrants; designated
Radiation Protection Officers; to management bodies and their specialist advisers; and to
health and safety committees concerned with radiation protection of workers. It may also be used by workers and their representatives to
