Accreditation in radiation protection
The latest information regarding ARPAB can be found on the ARPAB website.
The information below will soon be deleted. Please see the ARPAB website for the latest information.
The Australasian Radiation Protection Accreditation Board is sponsored by three societies; ACPSEM, AIOH and ARPS.
ARPAB conducted a workshop in shielding design and verification of diagnostic imaging facilities at the 2010 conferences of ARPS and ACPSEM.
An exercise was set to test shielding design capability of attendees. Download it here.
A link to the NSW radiation shielding guideline is here.
The QLD standard for premises is here.
IAEA training presentations for shielding design can be found here.
ARPAB is soon to expand the accreditation system by offering recognition of skills at the top (expert) level within ionising radiation. This top level accreditation will be designed to integrate with ARPANSA documents that have been published in recent years.
ARPAB is also close to formalising a fast-track system that will be available to people with suitable experience. The fast-track system will allow these people to achieve ARPAB accreditation in a short period of time, through recognition of the work they have done or are presently doing.
Each society provides 2 members to the Board, and ARPAB membership is presently;
Mamoon Haque ACPSEM
John Pattison (Registrar) ACPSEM
Dr Cameron Lawrence AIOH
Brian Eva AIOH
Mark Sonter ARPS
Brent Rogers (Treasurer) ARPS
