    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.

    The RPI is now a Research and Technical Support Organization of the Ghana Atomic Energy Commission. Its mandate is to work in the area of radiation protection to assist in the overall fulfillment of the vision and mission of the Ghana Atomic Energy Commission, The RPI collaborates with other stakeholders in shaping the national policy on radiation protection. The Institute has obtained the relevant authorization from the Nuclear Regulatory Authority (NRA) to undertake some technical services.
