It is proposed to keep the Radiation Protection Regulations of a country under constant review and subject to modifications in pace with the modern developments in Medical Uses of Ionising Radiation at the patient level. Very high doses of radiation are used in Radiotherapy Centres for cancer treatment. It is suggested that old and developing centres and new centres of Radiotherapy should be graded in four groups of centres have been clearly and separately laid down in this paper., so that National Radiation protection Regulations of a country could be drafted and implemented with lease difficulty. It has been proposed in the paper that Radiotherapy Centres falling in the group 'D' should be improved so that these become fit to be classified in C:B or A groups. It is brought out that additional grants should be made available for necessary improvements in Radiotherapy Centres falling in groups B & C as per National Radiation Protection Regulations propagated by the competent Authority of a country. It is further suggested that enforcement of National Radiation Protection Regulations should be vested in Physicists who are qualified trained and duly recognised by the Radiation Protection Regulatory Board of a country, as the Radiological Safety officer.
