Radiation Protection Series No. 8
Code of Practice for the Exposure of Humans to Ionizing Radiation for Research Purposes (2005)
This Code of Practice is designed to ensure that researchers proposing to expose research participants to ionizing radiation provide the participants and the Human Research Ethics Committees with information that allows consent to be properly considered by the research participants and approval considered by the Human Research Ethics Committee.
Removal of Annex 4
In January 2015, Annex 4 - Health Effects of Ionizing Radiation and Standards for Control of Exposure, was removed from the electronic edition of RPS 8. For information on the health effects of ionising radiation, refer to RPS F-1 Fundamentals for Protection Against Ionising Radiation (2014).
