Illegal laser pointers that are being imported into the country due to incorrect product labelling is an issue being pinpointed to Australia’s Freight and Trade Alliance this month by ARPANSA scientist Dr Chris Brzozek.
ARPANSA has provided funding to RMIT to investigate the impact of non-ionising radiation on cell permeability. This research is funded as the first ‘major project’ under ARPANSA’s new EME Program Research Framework.
ARPANSA experts have published an article in Public Health Research and Practice, a journal of the Sax Institute, that calls for more research into the use of non-ionising radiation for cosmetic purposes.
The Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency has partnered with the Republic of the Marshall Islands (RMI) government to support the development of a sovereign radiation monitoring capability in the region.
