Under the Regulation of the Council of Ministers of 18 January 2005 on positions important for ensuring nuclear safety and radiological protection and radiological protection inspectors (Journal of Laws, No 21, Item 173) only those individuals who hold special national authorizations granted by the PAA President may be employed in particular positions in nuclear facilities and in other entities involving exposure to ionizing radiation. The aforementioned provision constitute the implementation of the Council Directive 96/29/Euratom of 13 May 1996 laying down basic safety standards for the protection of the health of workers and the general public.

In accordance with the aforementioned Regulation, the condition for obtaining authorizations is, among other things, good health condition, suitable education, professional experience, completion of training on radiological protection and nuclear safety in the scope required for the specific type of authorizations and, finally, passing of an examination before the PAA President’s examination board.

In certain cases the PAA President may exempt an individual from the requirement to attend training (but the PAA President may not exempt him/her from the examination). The conditions for admittance to examination without training are determined in § 6 of the Regulation of 18 January 2005. A candidate applying for the admittance to examination without required training should submit an application (or his/her employer depending on the type of authorization) to the PAA President providing evidence that he/she meets required conditions as set out in the Regulation. The PAA President should respond to the application within 30 days.
