IRPA http://www.irpa.net/index.asp International Radiation Protection Association en-gb Thu, 22 Feb 2018 18:31:50 +0000 Abstract for the 71st Executive Council of IRPA http://www.irpa.net/page.asp?id=54742 <p>Abstract of EC71 minutes</p> <p>Hosted by IRPA&rsquo;s EC member Sigur&eth;ur Magn&ugrave;sson in the offices of the Icelandic Regulatory Authority, the 71st Executive Council of IRPA was held in Reykjavik, Iceland, on Thursday 7th and Friday 8th September, 2017.</p> <p>IRPA&rsquo;s officers, the President, Vice President, Treasurer, Executive Officer, Vice-President for Congress Affairs and Publications Director presented and commented on their activities of the past year.</p> <div>In addition, among the most significant items on the agenda, a decision was taken to enable an AS to vote at the General Assembly, even if absent, through a new proxy process, which will be submitted to the Rules Committee at the next Congress in Seoul 2020.</div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <div>&bull;&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;All EC members approved the IRPA Publication on the System of Protection, to be sent to the AS and the main international organizations.</div> <div>&bull;&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;IRPA&rsquo;s role with the medical community was discussed and a number of actions was adopted.</div> <div>&bull;&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;The EC decided to set up small &lsquo;Horizon Scanning&rsquo; group (based on those EC members connected to key international organisations) led by the Publications Director with a view to informing the AS on scientific updates through IRPA bulletin and website.</div> <div>&bull;&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;Decision was made to update the IRPA document on the View of the Profession before uploading on the website.</div> <div>&bull;&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;After the publication of two IRPA documents on Eye Dose, decision was made by the EC to continue with the task group on this topic, with a view to capture experience feedback from the AS on initial implementation.</div> <div>&bull;&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;The EC was given a quick tour of the revamped IRPA website by the Publications Director and its evolution. It is now much more user-friendly and modern.</div> <div>&bull;&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;The status of activities carried out by the various IRPA task groups was also reviewed in detail.</div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <p>The President, Roger Coates, and the EC members discussed all other items on the agenda, including details of all forthcoming Congresses, and IRPA 15 International Congress in Seoul in 2020.</p> <div>As to the arrangements for the 72nd EC meeting in 2018, it was decided to hold it in Milan, Italy, on 21 and 22 June, 2018.</div> Mon, 22 Jan 2018 19:15:53 +0000 IRPA Executive Council Supports Free ICRP Publications http://www.irpa.net/page.asp?id=54741 <p>ICRP has recently launched an an <a href="http://www.icrp.org/page.asp?id=362">initiative to make access to the Annals of the ICRP free</a>. I see this as transformational for our profession. Not only will all radiation protection professionals, including the more than 18,000 members of IRPA, have easier access to the recommendations that are the foundation of our work, but other interested professionals, policy makers, and members of the public will also have free access.</p> <p>To make all ICRP publications free, other than the most recent rolling two years, EUR 500,000 needs to be raised by the end of 2018. The UAE Federal Authority for Nuclear Regulation and the US Department of Energy each contributed about EUR 50,000 to kickstart the initiative, and others are beginning to join in. Knowing that this will have a very positive global impact on our profession in perpetuity, the IRPA Executive Council has pledged EUR 10,000 to the cause.</p> <p>I will contact each IRPA Associate Society in the new year with further details.</p> <p>- Roger Coates, IRPA President</p> Fri, 22 Dec 2017 19:46:49 +0000 IRPA Consultation: Is the system of protection 'fit for purpose' and can it be readily communicated? Views of the RP professionals http://www.irpa.net/page.asp?id=54740 <p class="MsoNormal"><strong><span lang="EN-GB">IRPA Consultation: Is the System of Protection &lsquo;Fit for Purpose&rsquo; and can it be readily communicated? Views of the Radiation Protection Professionals</span></strong><span lang="EN-GB"></span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span lang="EN-GB">Over the past two years IRPA has been running a consultation, seeking views from the Associate Societies on current issues relating to the System of Protection. It is a pleasure to announce that the report has now been published as a Memorandum in the Journal of Radiological Protection.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><a href="http://iopscience.iop.org/article/10.1088/1361-6498/aa9e5c">http://iopscience.iop.org/article/10.1088/1361-6498/aa9e5c</a></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span lang="EN-GB">The consultation was focussed on seeking views from the professional radiation protection community on the effectiveness of the system of protection and its ability to be widely communicated and understood by interested parties.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span lang="EN-GB">Many international organisations have a key role in the evolution of the system of protection and in formulating standards and guidance supporting its implementation. However, the practical implementation of radiation protection is undertaken by thousands of practitioners around the world, including operators, medical personnel, regulators, researchers and specialist advisors, who have this crucial day to day role, including communicating requirements and approaches to a wide range of lay persons. It is IRPA&rsquo;s task to ensure that this practical experience is able to be fed back into the ongoing development of the system.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span lang="EN-GB">We now look forward to working with the Associate Societies, representing the practitioner community, and with the international organisations over the coming period in order to explore the issues raised in this report. </span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span lang="EN-GB">This report is by no means the end of this discussion. The evolution of the System of Protection is a long term process, and we would welcome further views over the coming period. To this end we would encourage all Associate Societies to ensure that the report is given the widest circulation amongst the radiation protection community, and to develop further views and experiences which would add to the debate in due course.</span></p> Tue, 12 Dec 2017 14:19:27 +0000 Joint Statement -- Meeting on the International Systems of Radiation Protection: Bringing together Protection against Ionising and Non-Ionising Radiation http://www.irpa.net/docs/IRPA ICRP-ICNIRP 2017 Meeting Statement.pdf http://www.irpa.net/docs/IRPA ICRP-ICNIRP 2017 Meeting Statement.pdf Tue, 14 Nov 2017 18:16:26 +0000 IRPACUBA date changed by one week to April 16-20, 2018 http://www.irpa.net/page.asp?id=54738 <h2>PLEASE NOTE:</h2> <h2>IRPACUBA date has changed by one week to April 16-20, 2018.</h2> <h2 class="MsoNormal">See&nbsp;<a href="http://www.irpacuba.com/">http://www.irpacuba.com/</a>&nbsp;for more details</h2> <p class="MsoNormal">&nbsp;</p> Mon, 13 Nov 2017 21:06:05 +0000 IRPA14 Proceedings are AVAILABLE NOW! http://www.irpa.net/page.asp?id=54739 <p><strong>There is a brand new section on our website for the IRPA14 Proceedings!</strong></p> <p><strong>Check them out here:</strong></p> <p><strong><a href="page.asp?id=2">http://www.irpa.net/page.asp?id=2</a></strong></p> Mon, 13 Nov 2017 21:08:49 +0000 Summary Reports from the International Symposium on Radiological Protection in Medicine http://www.irpa.net/page.asp?id=54736 <p class="MsoNormal" style="margin-top: 7.5pt; margin-right: 0in; margin-bottom: 11.25pt; margin-left: 0in; line-height: normal;"><span style="font-size: 12pt;">From the&nbsp;Peruvian Society of Radiation Protection&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal" style="margin-top: 7.5pt; margin-right: 0in; margin-bottom: 11.25pt; margin-left: 0in; line-height: normal;"><strong><span style="font-size: 12pt;">Summary reports from the International Symposium on Radiological Protection in Medicine</span></strong><strong><span style="font-size: 12pt;"></span></strong></p> <p class="MsoNormal" style="margin-top: 7.5pt; margin-right: 0in; margin-bottom: 11.25pt; margin-left: 0in; line-height: normal;"><span style="font-size: 12pt;">Did you miss the International Symposium on Radiological Protection in Medicine in Peru?

John spent many years of his working life as a Director of Nuclear Science and Technology at the Royal Naval College at Greenwich, in the UK, and he was very active in international relations in radiation protection. He was President of the Society for Radiological Protection in 1976/7.
