CIRMS is a not-for-profit organization made up of individuals, organizations and corporations from national and international government, academic and private industry sectors having an interest in identifying strategic needs and directions for ionizing radiation measurements and standards.

CIRMS membership is composed of leaders and experts from the areas of medical radiation, occupational and environmental radiation protection, homeland security and materials effects/industrial processes based on radiation who have an interest in and wish to influence the direction of measurement programs, technologies and standards.

Toward these ends, we gather, evaluate and disseminate information about measurement needs facing the four application disciplines with the aim to facilitate funding and the ultimate satisfaction of those needs.

Each of these endeavors is enhanced by the publication of the Needs Report.


The Dynamic Needs Report is now available online here.

The last one was published in 2011 as the "Fifth Report on Needs in Ionizing Radiation Measurements and Standards".
