Education and Training
HERCA activities on Education and Training in radiation protection are under the responsibility of the WG on Education and Training (WGE&T).
Radiation Protection Education and Training (E&T) has been of outmost interest for HERCA from the beginning of the Association in 2007. a specific task force was created for interacting with ENETRAP & EUTERP projects and building on them. The TF has prioritized the work on radiation protection expert (RPE) and radiation protection office (RPO) focusing on the implementation of requirements in the Euratom Basic Safety Standards (BSS)
In 2015, the TF has organised a workshop on the implementation of RPE and RPO on 6-8 July in Montrouge (Paris, France) and the WG on Education and Training (WGE&T) was created.
Having a common understanding on the new requirements for RPE/RPO should facilitate the implementation of BSS on RPE and RPO at national level and the way towards a better harmonisation on this issue, the WG E&T produced in 2017 the guidance on the Implementation of Radiation Protection Expert (RPE) and Radiation Protection Officer (RPO) Requirements of Council Directive 2013/59/Euratom.
