PTP’s Health Physics Courses - the best in hands-on radiation safety training

 

   > by Agency   > Nuclear Regulatory Commission   > Health Physics Position Statementsshow list of document types

The Health Physics Positions (HPPOS) Database (NUREG/CR-5569, Rev. 1, 1994) is a compilation of NRC staff positions on a wide range of topics involving radiation protection (Health Physics). It consists of over 300 documents in the forms of letters, memoranda, and excepts from technical reports. The HPPOS Data Base was developed by NRC Headquarters and Regional Offices to help ensure uniformity in inspections, enforcement and licensing actions.
