Interagency Steering Committee on Radiation Standards


The goal of ISCORS is to improve consistency in Federal radiation protection programs. Specific objectives include:

  • Facilitating consensus on acceptable levels of radiation risk;
  • Promoting consistent risk-assessment and risk-management approaches in setting and implementing standards for protection from ionizing radiation;
  • Promoting completeness and coherence of Federal standards for radiation protection;
  • Identifying interagency issues and coordinating their resolution.

ISCORS is also a forum for Federal agencies to keep abreast of national and international radiation protection activities.
