Code of Practice and Safety Guide for Radiation Protection and Radioactive Waste Management in Mining and Mineral Processing (2005)
The Code establishes requirements for radiation protection in mining and mineral processing industries and for protection of human health and the environment from the effects of radioactive waste from mining and mineral processing. A companion volume, RPS 9.1 Safety Guide for Monitoring, Assessing and Recording Occupational Radiation Doses in Mining and Mineral Processing was published in 2011.
Removal of Annex B
In January 2015, Annex B - Health Effects of Ionizing Radiation and Standards for Control of Exposure, was removed from the electronic edition of RPS 9. For information on the health effects of ionising radiation, refer to RPS F-1 Fundamentals for Protection Against Ionising Radiation (2014).
Amendment of Tables
To bring the dose coefficients provided in RPS 9 and RPS 9.1 in line with updates to the occupational dose coefficients presented in the International Commission for Radiation Protection (ICRP) Occupational Intake of Radionuclides (OIR) document series Tables 1 and 2 from RPS 9 and Table A1 and A2 from RPS 9.1 have been amended.
