National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements
7910 Woodmont Ave.
Bethesda, MD 20814
The National Council on Radiation Protection and Measures (NCRP) is a non-profit, voluntary corporation chartered by Congress in 1964. It is dedicated to collecting, analyzing, developing, and disseminating information and recommendations about protection against radiation and radiation measurements, quantities and units, particularly those concerned with radiation protection. The organization also strives to provide a means by which organizations concerned with the scientific and related aspects of radiation protection and of radiation quantities may cooperate for effective utilization of their combined resources and to stimulate the work of such organizations. The NCRP works to develop basic concepts about radiation quantities, units and measurements, about the application of these concepts, and about radiation protection. The organization cooperates with the International Commission on Radiological Protection, the International Commission on Radiation Units and Measurements, and other national and international organizations, government and private, concerned with radiation quantities, units and measurements and with radiation protection. The council is the successor to the National Committee on Radiation Protection and Measurements that was formed in 1929. The council members are from public and private universities, medical centers, national and private laboratories, and industry. The council produces specific scientific reports.
