The IRPA Executive Council identified this report as being of particular interest to the radiation protection profession, and therefore requested that Associate Societies send comments on the draft to IRPA to be consolidated and sent to ICRP.</p> <p>Eight Associate Societies responded: the Argentinian Radiation Protection Society, German-Swiss Society for Radiation Protection, Italian Association for Radiation Protection, Japan Health Physics Society, Korean Association for Radiation Protection, Romanian Society for Radiological Protection, Spanish Radiation Protection Association, and UK Society for Radiological Protection.</p> <p>Based on these comments and IRPA&rsquo;s current positions which relate to the topic, the Executive Council provided a set of general comments to ICRP, as well as forwarding all detailed comments received from the Associate Societies. Like all comments submitted to ICRP, these can be viewed on the ICRP website: <a href="http://www.icrp.org/page.asp?id=382">http://www.icrp.org/page.asp?id=382</a>.</p> <p>Thanks to all IRPA members who contributed to this, either through IRPA or directly to ICRP.</p> Wed, 1 Aug 2018 21:38:06 +0000 IRPA Launches New Website! http://www.irpa.net/page.asp?id=54787 IRPA has launched a new website at www.irpa.net. The new site should make finding the information you need easier than ever before, and is also capable of handling more advanced features. One such new feature, launched with the new website, is the IRPA Horizon Scan. A few key topics of wide interest to IRPA members are being followed. Users are encouraged to add to the discussion on each topic by leaving constructive comments on the website, ideally providing new information with references. Go to www.irpa.net, and click on TOPICS then HORIZON SCAN to check it out. Be the first to leave a comment! The new site is still a work in progress. If you have any comments, do not hesitate to let us know by email to the IRPA EC Publications Director Christopher Clement at clement@irpa.net.

I see this as transformational for our profession.

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 style="margin-top: 10px; margin-bottom: 15px; font-family: Optima, Lucida, &quot;MgOpen Cosmetica&quot;, &quot;Lucida Sans Unicode&quot;, sans-serif; font-size: 13px;">I will contact each IRPA Associate Society in the new year with further details.</p> <p style="margin-top: 10px; margin-bottom: 15px; font-family: Optima, Lucida, &quot;MgOpen Cosmetica&quot;, &quot;Lucida Sans Unicode&quot;, sans-serif; font-size: 13px;">- Roger Coates, IRPA President</p> Wed, 23 May 2018 11:58:35 +0000 IRPA Consultation: Is the system of protection 'fit for purpose' and can it be readily communicated?
