The Asia Region ALARA Network (ARAN) was initiated by the IAEA in Daejeon, Republic of Korea in December 2007, to support the development of a sustainable regional network, which facilitates information, findings and data exchange and practical and cost effective implementation of the principle of optimisation of radiation protection in participating countries.


To maintain, enhance and develop competence and skills in radiation protection, with special emphasis on the implementation of the ALARA principle for occupational exposures in routine operations, contribute to the harmonisation of objectives, standards and practices, particularly concerning ALARA, within participating countries and contribute to the effective use, exchange and integration of skills and expertise across Member States.


ARAN is coordinated by Steering Committee, IAEA and Regional Cooperative Agreement (RCA), comprising representatives of 17 countries: Australia, Bangladesh, China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Rep of Korea, Malaysia, Mongolia, Myanmar, New Zealand, Pakistan, Philippines, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Thailand and Viet Nam.



Once a year; a few tens of participants; an exchange of experiences leading to sets of recommendations.
