What is Health Quality

Radiation Protection Legislation


A panel of experts has completed a report on behalf of Health Quality Ontario with recommendations and advice on updating the Healing Arts Radiation Protection (HARP) Act, Ontario’s medical radiation safety legislation.

The panel reviewed the evidence and consulted widely to create its recommendations.

Though the HARP Act has played an important role in protecting patients, the panel felt that new legislation is needed to address gaps—both now and in the future.

The panel’s report has been submitted to the Ministry for consideration.
