Radiation Protection Series

The Radiation Protection Series

ARPANSA produces a range of publications to promote practices which protect human health and the environment from harmful effects of radiation. For the publication categories within the Radiation Protection Series, namely Fundamentals, Codes of Practice and Guides ARPANSA is assisted by the Radiation Health Committee, which oversees the preparation of draft documents and recommends publication to the Radiation Health and Safety Advisory Council, which endorses documents and recommends their publication by the CEO.

Currently there are 27 publications within the Radiation Protection Series.

The Nuclear Codes published under the Environment Protection (Nuclear Codes) Act 1978 (repealed) have been republished as part of the Radiation Protection Series. Remaining publications in the former Radiation Health Series, published by the NHMRC and now the responsibility of ARPANSA, are being reviewed and incorporated into the Radiation Protection Series.

Information on the review process and priorities can be found at Radiation Health Committee Publication Program. Each publication contains contacts for Commonwealth, state and territory Radiation Protection Authorities that were correct at the time of printing each particular publication, but may have been amended since. See Authorities for an up to date list of contact details.
