Abstract

The nuclear heritage of the Republic of Kazakhstan, the unfavorable ecological situation, as well as the increase in the frequency of prescribing and conducting diagnostic studies with ionizing radiation by practical health care specialists, in turn, attract attention to such an urgent problem as radiation safety of the population.
The purpose of this review was to identify the main problems that prevent the sustainable development of the field of radiation safety by differentiating the existing normative legal acts and other normative documents of the Republic of Kazakhstan related to radiation diagnostics.
As part of the descriptive review, an analysis of 9 normative legal acts regulating radiation safety issues of the Republic of Kazakhstan was carried out.
The results of the research showed that in the Republic of Kazakhstan, the experience of successful regulation aimed at protecting patients and medical personnel from the adverse effects of ionizing radiation has been formed. However, there are aspects that need to be supplemented at the local level.
