Abstract

The predecessor organizations of the National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements (NCRP) were established in 1929 (the U.S. Advisory Committee on X-Ray and Radium Protection) and in 1946 (the National Committee on Radiation Protection and Measurements). In 1964, the NCRP was formally chartered by the U.S. Congress as a national resource for scientific guidance on issues related to radiation measurements and health protection. In this paper the history and scientific contributions of NCRP are reviewed, followed by a discussion of its evolving mission and future scientific goals.
