Radiation Advisory Committee

About the RAC

The Radiation Advisory Committee (RAC) was established pursuant to ORS 453.645. The mission and duty of the RAC is to advise Oregon Health Authority on matters relating to radiological health and radiation protection, including reviewing current and proposed Radiation Protection Services (RPS) administrative rules.
There are eight committee members who, because of their training and experience, are qualified to advise the department on radiological health and radiation protection. The RAC holds at least two public meetings a year. Previous meeting notifications, agendas, and minutes can be found on the meeting archive page.

The 2017 RAC meetings are scheduled for: 
February 8, 2017
October 11, 2017


The meeting notification & agenda will be posted when they become available. Copies of previous meeting notifications, agendas, and minutes can be found on the Meeting Archive page.
