The Health Physics Society (HPS) Board of Directors passed a resolution at its meeting on 12 July 2007 recognizing the week of 4-10 November 2007 as National Radiation Protection Professionals Week.
The proclamation of the first week of November as National Radiation Protection Professionals Week was first made by the Conference of Radiation Control Program Directors (CRCPD) in 2005. The CRCPD has continued to pass resolutions proclaiming National Radiation Protection Professionals Week in 2006 and 2007. This is the first year the HPS has passed a resolution with this proclamation.
The intent of these resolutions is to give visibility to the contributions radiation protection professionals make to the health and safety of the nation and to gain recognition of these contributions from employers and the public.
