Corporate Profile

RPA aim to be a leading light – not just in Australia but internationally

Radiation Professional Australia (RPA) RPA’s mission is to provide complete, compliant and efficient radiation management across all industries, by providing expert support and highly skilled in-field technical specialists and equipment to support our industry partners and improve project outcomes

Radioactive materials and radiation sources are used or encountered throughout industry. The identification of radiation as a hazard requiring control is often overlooked or poorly understood, including in the subsequent management of the risk.

RPA was established to bring together the necessary level of expertise and experience to enable us to support our customers to ensure that radiation is understood, used and managed in a practical, effective and safe manner.
