Description
Excerpt: The Federal Radiation Council (FRC) was formed in 1959 to provide recommendations to the President for Federal policy on radiation matters affecting health. The first Federal radiation protection guidance was promulgated shortly thereafter, on May 13, 1960, and set forth basic principles for protection of both workers and members of the general population. Over the ensuing decade the FRC issued additional guidance on a number of radiation protection matters, but the general guidance issued in 1960 remained essentially unchanged.
