Radiation: HPA-RCE report series

Documents relating to ionising and non-ionising radiation, chemical and environmental hazards and the Advisory Groups on Ionising (AGIR) and Non-ionising Radiation (AGNIR).

When part of the Health Protection Agency, the Centre for Radiation, Chemicals and Environmental Hazards produced numerous publications concerning radiation, chemical and environmental topics.

This series, the documents of the Health Protection Agency, contains documents relating to:

  • ionising and non-ionising radiation
  • chemical and environmental hazards
  • the Advisory Groups on Ionising Radiation (AGIR) and Non-ionising Radiation (AGNIR)

The full series is available on the UK Government Web Archive.
