Following the publication of the EU directive (Council Directive 97/43 Euratom), the Ionising Radiation (Medical Exposure) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2000 came into force on 1 January 2001. This order sets out legislative measures for the protection of individuals against dangers of ionising radiation in relation to medical exposure.

In Northern Ireland, responsibility for monitoring and inspecting of IR(ME)R passed from DHSSPS to RQIA on 15 March 2010.
