  • Sets policy which will be coordinated through the Radiation Safety Office
  • Performs reviews of routine applications involving radioactive material or radiation use
  • Ensures that exposure to radioactive material or radiation producing equipment are maintained at levels as low as reasonably achievable
  • Reviews activities performed by the Radiation Safety Office
  • Prepares and maintains all Committee business
