Radiation Safety Committee (RSC)
The principal function of the RSC is to establish university policy for the safe use of radioactive materials and radiation-producing devices that comply with federal, state and local regulations. Research projects that involve the use of radioactive material or radiation producing devices must be authorized by the Iowa State University Radiation Safety Committee (RSC).
The RSC is composed of a representative from each of five colleges where research in the physical and life sciences and in engineering is conducted, plus two members with specific expertise in radiation protection and one university management representative (i.e., Director, Office for Responsible Research (ORR)). One of the three members with specific expertise shall be the University Radiation Safety Officer (RSO).
Terms on the committee for the RSO, the ORR director, and a radiation expert (historically, the Ames Laboratory Radiation Safety Officer) are indefinite. All other terms, including the committee chair, are for three years with reappointments being determined by the Vice President for Research.
The RSC meets at least once during each academic semester at a time arranged by the chair for attendance of the maximum number of members. Additional meetings may be called if circumstances dictate need.
