Applying for a safety licence for the use of radiation
The use of radiation is subject to a safety licence granted by the Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority (STUK). On this page you can find more information on how to apply for a safety licence, how to change your licence and how to stop using radiation. The website links to a form service where applications, notifications and changes can be made. STUK does not grant safety licence in English. The safety licence is issued in Finnish or Swedish.
Radiation sources include X-ray equipment, radioactive substances and any appliances which contain radioactivity as well as radioactive waste. The use of radiation includes the use of a radiation source as well as the manufacture, trade, installation, services, repair, leasing, possession, import and export of radiation sources and the transport of a high-activity sealed source. The use of radiation also includes the processing and rendering harmless of radioactive waste.
