Free or Discounted NCRP Reports and Commentaries Offered to HPS Members

Health Physics Society (HPS) members can now enjoy free access to many National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements (NCRP) documents (reports and commentaries) as part of their membership. For those publications that are not freely available, HPS members will receive a 60% discount from the list price for electronic versions of NCRP documents purchased through the HPS Members Only website. Members can now log in to the Members Only site and download a free document or purchase one at 60% off list price!

Burk and Associates, in consultation with HPS leadership, negotiated this agreement with NCRP at cost to HPS of $35,000 per year for five years. This contract is solely for electronically available NCRP reports and commentaries, with special provisions as follows:

  1. The current 20% off hard-copy purchases for HPS members will remain.
  2. NCRP will provide access and download of electronically available PDFs of older NCRP reports and commentaries at no charge.
  3. NCRP will provide hard copies of older NCRP reports and commentaries on occasion for distribution at HPS meetings (beginning with Raleigh meeting in 2017).
