Health Physics Advisory Committee

Under the Radiation Protection Regulations of the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC), every licensee is required to implement a Radiation Safety Program that meets specified requirements. Additional requirements for radiation safety programs arise from legislation promulgated by provincial and municipal authorities. At McMaster University, the responsibility for establishing and continually reviewing the radiation safety program is delegated by the Office of the President to the Health Physics Advisory Committee (HPAC).
