The IAEA’s Statute authorizes the Agency to establish safety standards to protect health and minimize danger to life and property. Safety standards are only effective, if they are properly applied in practice. Regulating nuclear and radiation safety is a national responsibility, and many Member States have decided to adopt the IAEA’s safety standards for use in their national regulations. For the Contracting Parties to the various international safety conventions, IAEA standards provide a consistent, reliable means of ensuring the effective fulfillment of obligations under the conventions. The standards are also applied by designers, manufacturers and operators around the world to enhance nuclear and radiation safety in power generation, medicine, industry, agriculture, research and education. The IAEA takes seriously the enduring challenge for users and regulators everywhere: that of ensuring a high level of safety in the use of nuclear materials and radiation sources around the world.

Public concern over the possible health effects fromelcctromagnetic fields (EMF) has led to the preparation of this handbook. Potential risk of EMF exposure from facilities such as power lines or mobile phone base stations present a difficult set of challenges for decision- makers. The challenges include determining if there is a hazard from EMF exposure and what the potential health impact, i.e. risk assessment; recognizing the reasons why the public may be concerned, i.e. risk perception; and implementing policies that protect public health and respond to public concerns, i.e. management.

The structure of this Code of Practice differs from that of TRS-277 and more closely resembles that of TRS-381 in that the practical recommendations and data for each radiation type have been placed in an individual section devoted to that radiation type. Each essentially forms a different Code of Practice and includes detailed procedures and worksheets. The Code is addressed to users provided with calibrations in terms of absorbed dose to water traceable to a Primary Standard Dosimetry Laboratory. This category of users is likely to become the large majority since most standard laboratories are prepared to, or are planning to, supply calibrations in terms of absorbed dose to water at the reference radiation qualities recommended in this Code of Practice. Users who are not yet provided with calibrations in terms of absorbed dose to water may still refer to the current air kerma based codes of practice, such as TRS-277 and TRS-381, or adopt the present document using a calibration factor in terms of absorbed dose to water derived from an air kerma calibration as described in the text.

A number of IAEA Member States are undertaking to strengthen their radiation protection and safety infrastructures in order to facilitate the adoption of the requirements established in the Sponsoring Organizations. In this connection, the IAEA has developed a technical cooperation programme (Model Project on Upgrading Radiation Protection Infrastructure) to improve radiation protection and safety infrastructures in 51 Member States, taking into account national profiles and needs of the individual participating countries. The present report deals with the elements of a regulatory infrastructure for radiation protection and safety and intends to facilitate the implementation of the Basic Safety Standards in practice.

The aim of this paper is to describe concisely the 12th Congress of the International Radiation Protection Association (IRPA), which was held in Buenos Aires, Argentina, on October 19-24, 2008. Termed IRPA12, the Congress was organized by the Sociedad Argentina de Radioprotección (Argentine Radiation Protection Society), SAR, under the motto ‘strengthening radiation protection worldwide’.  The subsequent chapters will resume the proceedings of the three fields covered by the Congress’ programme.

The objective of this publication is to provide practical guidance for those responding within the first few hours of a radiological emergency. This includes the emergency service personnel who would initially respon at the local level and the national officials who would support this early response.

The International Basic Safety Standards for Protection against Ionizing Radiation and for the Safety of Radiation Sources (BSS) cover the application of ionizing radiation for all practices and interventions and are, therefore, basic and general in nature. A number of drafts regulatory guidance publications for the main practices involving the use of ionizing radiation have already been prepared. This guidance is intended for both regulators and users of radiation sources in nuclear medicine. Regulators may use it for reviewing applications for authorization and during the inspection of facilities. Registrants/licensees may wish to follow the guidance in order to comply with BSS requirements or equivalent national regulations. Experts recruited on IAEA missions to advice on the implementation of the BSS for the practice of nuclear medicine are expected to use this regulatory guidance report rather than their own national guidance.

The International Basic Safety Standards for Protection against Ionizing Radiation and for the Safety of Radiation Sources (BSS) establish requirements on the legal persons responsible for designing, running and decommissioning practices involving ionizing radiation. This report is intended to be of assistance to both regulators and users of radiation sources in diagnostic radiology and interventional procedures using X rays in applying the BSS to this practice. Regulators will find it useful for reviewing applications for authorization and for inspection of the practice. Users of radiation in radiology may follow the guidance provided in order to comply with BSS requirements or equivalent national requirements. Experts recruited on IAEA missions to advise on the implementation of the BSS for the practice of diagnostic radiology and interventional procedures using X rays are expected to use this regulatory guidance report rather than their own national regulations and guidance.
