IAEA International Conference on Radiation Safety: Improving Radiation Protection in Practice
13 February 2020
The IAEA is organizing the International Conference on Radiation Safety: Improving Radiation Protection in Practice in Vienna, from 9 to 13 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, which will identify the key challenges and possible solutions in radiation protection that need to be addressed by the international community, will be of interest to regulators, researchers, operators and radiation protection professionals.
