United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission - Protecting People and the Environment

U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission

Question 11: Should the Radiation Protection Program be a

stand-alone document or can it be the sum of many documents

or manuals (e.g., a requirement for HP audits included as

part of a QA audit program document)?

Answer: Section 20.1101 requires a documented radiation

protection program. This documentation does not have to be

a stand-alone document but it must be reviewed annually.

(Reference: 10 CFR 20.1101)
