About our regulatory publications
ARPANSA produces a range of publications to promote practices which protect human health and the environment from the harmful effects of radiation.
ARPANSA publishes the Radiation Protection Series. This replaces the former Radiation Health Series by National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) and for which ARPANSA now has responsibility, as well as the Codes published under the Environment Protection (Nuclear Codes) Act 1978, which has been repealed. Corporate documents such as planning documentation and Annual Reports can be found under Corporate Publications.
Publication development is overseen by the Radiation Health Committee which refers the final draft to the Radiation Health and Safety Advisory Council for endorsement prior to publication by the CEO of ARPANSA.
