How to Read Legislation

In partnership with SRP, Chris Englefield will guide you through legislation.

Most people working in Radiation Protection (RP) need to read primary or secondary legislation from time to time. Reading the words is one thing; understanding what they say and what they don’t say is something else entirely. This webinar, presented by Chris Englefield, will provide an introduction to the practical understanding of English and European legislation. The principles will be applicable in other parts of the UK.

We will start off with a guide to understanding the structure of legislation relevant to RP, to enable quicker access to the parts of interest. Then we’ll consider the meanings of key words and phrases and how to interpret words that are not defined in the legislation itself. The expected outcome is that participants will feel better able to navigate and understand any piece of legislation in the future.
