Mandate

An intergovernmental Committee established to support Federal, Provincial and Territorial radiation protection agencies in their respective mandates by:

  • providing a national focus for government radiation protection agencies;
  • promoting the harmonization of radiation health and safety programs;
  • identifying emerging issues in radiation protection and recommending actions to the appropriate jurisdictions;
  • developing and harmonizing radiation protection standards, guidelines and input for legislation;
  • providing a forum for representatives of the provinces and territories, the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission, Department of National Defence, Health Canada and other federal departments/agencies;
  • considering requests from other governmental committees and agencies concerned with health, safety and environmental issues and liaising regularly with such committees and agencies.

Role of Delegates

All delegates should come prepared to represent their respective governments and constituents, and be responsible for keeping their governments informed of decisions made.
