In Sweden, there is an authority called SSM that works to promote and prevent people and the environment from the undesirable effects of radiation, now and in the future. In 2018, a new law on radiation protection was introduced, with an increased responsibility for those who conduct radiation operations. Below you can read the new law. Some companies need to apply for a license to conduct radiation operations, while reporting obligations for businesses with low radiation content are sufficient.

There are many laws and regulations that apply to radiation, depending on what type of radiation is intended, how much radiation it is and what type of activity is intended. To make it a little easier for you, we’ve compiled some of the most important laws below that you can also download.
