The Society for Radiological Protection is the independent voice in all professional matters relating to Radiation Protection in the UK.
The ubiquitous nature of radiation uses (both ionising and non-ionising) requires the field of activity to cover safety aspects of radiation in medicine, industry, the nuclear power cycle, education and research. There are also cross cutting issues such as regulatory control, accidents, prevention of terrorism and emergency response. To pursue its objectives across all these fields the Society works with a number of allied societies and Government Departments and Agencies.
The Society has a programme of events covering the full range of radiation protection and topical issues. It publishes the internationally respected Journal of Radiological Protection for which scientific papers are subject to peer review. It currently has 2000+ members and, outside the USA, is the largest radiological protection society in the world.
The Society's three key Priorities are
- The Members - supporting them at all stages in their Radiation Protection career.
- Professional Standards - through the award of recognised professional titles
- Public Benefit - responding to requests for information or advice
