    Brief history

    The Radiation Protection Institute (RPI) was constituted to provide scientific and technical support for the now-defunct Radiation Protection Board (RPB), which was established in 1993 by PNDC Law 308 as the national competent authority for the authorization and inspection of practices using radiation sources and radioactive materials in Ghana.

    Currently, the Atomic Energy Act 204 of 1963, has been replaced by the Atomic Energy Act 588 of 2000, which established the Ghana Atomic Energy Commission (GAEC). Under Act 588, RPI was established to provide technical support to the then Radiation Protection Board (RPB) established under GAEC by PNDCL 308 of 1993 to perform regulatory functions.
