ARPS is seeking feedback and input on the future of radiological protection.
Drew Watson and Brent LeVert are representatives of the Australasian Radiation Protection Society (ARPS) and participants of a task group of the International Radiation Protection Association (IRPA).
The International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP) has taken the first step on the journey towards new general recommendation with the publication of a paper “Keeping the ICRP Recommendations Fit for Purpose”.
We kindly ask that you consider the ‘future of radiological protection’ and provide your feedback as follows:
a. General comments
b. Specific comments, with reference to line/lines in ICRP paper (link above).
c. Additional issues that should be considered by the ICRP - with rationale.
d. Thoughts on direction for improvement of the system.
The aim at this stage is not to capture the details of every aspect of the revision of the System of Protection but rather to focus on the bigger picture as this is the first step of a long process that will take 6 – 8 years.
Please provide your feedback via email to email@example.com; preferably by the 20th September 2021.
An ICRP workshop on the Future of Radiological Protection will take place on 19 – 20 October. This will be accessible online, see https://mailchimp.icrp.org/the-future-of-radiological-protectionIt is the aim of IRPA to present feedback from the task group at the workshop
