Notice of public meeting.


The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will host a meeting of the Interagency Steering Committee on Radiation Standards (ISCORS) on Thursday, December 6, 2018 in Washington, DC. The purpose of ISCORS is to foster early resolution and coordination of regulatory issues associated with radiation standards. Member agencies include: EPA; the Nuclear Regulatory Commission; and Departments of Energy; Defense; Transportation; Homeland Security; Health and Human Services; and Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration. Observer agencies include: The Office of Science and Technology Policy, Office of Management and Budget, Defense Nuclear Facilities Safety Board, as well as state representatives from Pennsylvania and Washington. ISCORS maintains several objectives: Facilitate a consensus on allowable levels of radiation risk to the public and workers; promote consistent and scientifically sound risk assessment and risk management approaches in setting and implementing standards for occupational and public protection from ionizing radiation; promote completeness and coherence of Federal standards for radiation protection; and identify interagency radiation protection issues and coordinate their resolution. ISCORS meetings include presentations by Subcommittee Chairs and discussions of current radiation protection issues. Committee meetings normally involve pre-decisional intra-governmental discussions and, as such, are normally not open for observation by members of the public or media. This particular ISCORS meeting is open to all interested members of the public. Time will be reserved on the agenda for members of the public to ask questions and provide comments.

Please Note: The final meeting agenda will be posted on the website shortly before the meeting.


The meeting will be held on Thursday, December 6, 2018, from 1:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.


The ISCORS meeting will be held in Room 1153 at the USEPA William Jefferson Clinton East Building (WJC East), 1201 Constitution Avenue NW, Washington, DC. Attendees are required to present a photo ID such as a government agency photo identification badge or valid driver's license. The Department of Homeland Security has begun implementing REAL ID Act requirements for visitors who present state-issued driver's licenses as IDs at restricted federal facilities. Driver's licenses from states and territories that do not comply with the REAL ID Act will not be accepted as identification. More details on these ID requirements can be found at​aboutepa/​visiting-epa-headquarters and clicking on the Building Access tab.
