Liaison with other Organizations

 

The ICRU has developed relationships with national and international agencies and organizations. In these relationships, the ICRU is looked to for primary guidance in matters relating to quantities, units, and measurements for ionizing radiation, and their applications in the radiological sciences. In 1960, through a special liaison agreement, the ICRU entered into a consultative status with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). The Commission has a formal relationship with the United Nations Scientific Committee on the Effects of Atomic Radiation (UNSCEAR), whereby the ICRU observers are invited to attend annual UNSCEAR meetings. The Commission and the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) informally exchange notifications of meetings, and the ICRU is formally designated for liaison with two of the ISO technical committees. The ICRU is a member of Consultative Committee for Units (CCU) – BIPM and Consultative Committee for Ionizing Radiation (CCRI(I) – BIPM and Observer to CCRI (II) and CCRI (III). The ICRU also enjoys a strong relationship with its sister organization, the National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements (NCRP). In essence, the ICRU and NCRP were founded concurrently by the same individuals. Presently, this longstanding relationship is formally acknowledged by a special liaison agreement.
