The latest development and status of the ANSI N43.1 Standard “Radiation Safety for the Design and Operation of Particle Accelerators” are presented. The Standard sets forth the requirements and recommendations for accelerator facilities to provide adequate radiation protection for the workers, the public and the environment. The Standard applies to the design, installation, commissioning, operation, maintenance, upgrades and decommissioning of accelerator facilities, i.e., the complete life cycle of a facility. The Standard specifies the requirements and recommendations for both the management and the technical aspects of the radiation safety program, graded to the complexity and hazard levels of the facility.
