    ARPS invites a young career professional to participate in a round table discussion on the topic Radiation Protection Future and Our Dreams

    ARPS is looking for an early career professional (under 40 years of age) with demonstrated interest and contributions in the field of radiation protection. The selected person will be nominated to take part in a 60 minute regional web round table discussion on the topic of Radiation Protection and Our Dreams. Two other nominations in the round table will also be early career professionals selected by the Japan Health Physics Society and the Korean Association of Radiation Protection. They will be accompanied by Dr Haruyuki Ogino, Bo Lindell Medallist announced for 2021. Bo Lindell award is announced by the International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP) for a young career scientist for exemplary contribution to the promotion of radiological protection. 

     

    The round table is scheduled in January 2021. To be selected, please apply via a return email by 17 December 2020.  Kindly attach a resume and 1 page of information which demonstrates your scientific, and professional contributions in the field of radiation protection, including service to ARPS.  

     

    This round table is an opportunity to broaden your professional footprint and network on a regional scale, and also provide motivation for other early career professionals. Professor Fujio Fujibuchi, the meeting organiser, is expected to write about the views expressed during the round table as a publication in the Journal of Radiation Protection and Research.

    Study results webinar: national database to improve impact assessments for life of mine activities

    NERA, together with our project partners Flinders University, BHP, Heathgate resources, ARPANSA, ANSTO, JRHC Enterprises & OZ Minerals invite you to join us for this webinar as we release the first results from an Australian collaborative research project that is helping to improve and reduce uncertainties with environmental radiological impact assessments in the energy and mining sectors.

    About the webinar
    Please join us and project leads Dr Gillian Hirth (ARPANSA), Jim Hodros (JRHC Enterprises), Dr Angel Rea (Flinders University) and Tim Duff (NERA) share industry learnings and key results of a collaborative two-year research project, which conducted fundamental research into the levels of radiation in flora, fauna and soils in Australia's arid environments. This is important data that underpins the understanding of potential radiological impacts from mining on flora and fauna.

    The results of this joint industry–research–national authority project contribute to the national database of radiation concentration ratios of flora, fauna and soils in areas of Australia not previously surveyed. The database will be an invaluable resource for industries in the arid and semi-arid regions of Australia that are required to assess their environmental radiological impact, and will improve both the environmental approval and mine closure processes.  

    Key details

    • Date: Tuesday 1 December, 2020
    • Time: 11am-12pm (AEDT) | 8am-9am (AWST)
    • Register HERE to attend webinar

    This one-hour webinar will feature:

    • Background to the collaborative research project
    • Summary of key project results
    • Understanding of the industry application and how the database can be used
    • Discussion of next steps and how the database can be expanded
    • Live Q&A with key project participants

    We are writing to remind you of ARPANSA’s public consultation on the draft ‘Standard for Limiting Exposure to Radiofrequency Fields – 100 KHz to 300 GHz’. Given the importance of this standard and to ensure that stakeholders had adequate time to submit feedback, the original closing date for the consultation of 30 September 2020 was extended to 21 October 2020.

     

    As you have been identified as an important stakeholder with expertise and/or interests in the area of RF EME protection, ARPANSA would like to encourage you, if you have not done so already, to make a submission on the draft ‘Standard for Limiting Exposure to Radiofrequency Fields – 100 KHz to 300 GHz’ (RPS S-1).

     

    We would like to thank all of the stakeholders that have already provided a submission to the consultation.

     

    Details on the consultation including the new draft standard and instructions on how to make a submission are available at https://www.arpansa.gov.au/standard-limiting-exposure-radiofrequency-fields-100-khz-300-ghz-rps-s-1

     

    We would like to thank you in advance for your participation in this important consultation.

     

    Kind regards

    The IAEA is organizing the International Conference on Radiation Safety: Improving Radiation Protection in Practice virtually from 9 to 20 November 2020.  

    The Conference aims to take stock of the worldwide radiation safety situation. It will provide a forum for the exchange of information on Member States’ experiences in applying the system of radiological protection, as provided for in the IAEA safety standards, to the protection of workers, patients, the public and the environment. Both natural and artificial radiation sources fall within the scope of the Conference.
    A particular focus will be given to the lessons learned from applying GSR Part 3 and improvements that could be considered to further facilitate its application. Discussion on changes in approach considered necessary for effectively dealing with new and emerging challenges in radiation protection is expected and encouraged.
    The Conference has been scheduled to allow for input from the 5th International Symposium on the System of Radiological Protection, which was organized by the ICRP in Adelaide, Australia, from 17 to 21 November 2019 and from the 15th International Congress of the International Radiation Protection Association, which will take place in Seoul, Republic of Korea, from 18 to 22 January 2021.
     
    The website of the Conference https://www.iaea.org/events/international-conference-on-radiation-safety-2020 provides the DRAFT Programme
