In partnership with the Health Physics Society (HPS), WK-LWW is pleased to provide links to standards developed by the HPS and the American National Standards Institute’s (ANSI) Accredited Standards Committees (ASCs), N13 and N43. 

The N13 Committee is concerned with radiation protection (related to the use, testing, and measurement of radiation) of workers and the public. The N43 Committee is concerned with radiation protection of the radiation-producing equipment used in industrial and nonmedical research and development activities (excluding nuclear reactors).
