Radiation Protection Adviser (RPA) Register

he EPA is required by law to maintain a register of Radiation Protection Advisers (RPA).  This register lists the names of individuals and organisations it has approved to provide expert advice on radiation protection matters to licensees.  Applicants wishing to be included on the EPA's RPA register can apply to the EPA Office of Radiological Protection using the forms available on this page.

Categories of Registers

There are two categories of RPA registers relating to the sectors to which those individuals and organisations have been approved to provide advice to:

  • Category I (medical, dental and veterinary sectors)
  • Category II (education, industrial and veterinary sectors)

Many of the individuals and organisations approved as RPAs provide an RPA consultancy service to licensees.  Details of RPAs who can provide this service to licensees in the educational, dental, industrial and medical sectors are available on the RPA Service web page.
