Organisation

The management structure of HERCA consists of:

 

  • A Board. (Board of HERCA (BoH), that meets in a plenary session twice a year. The Board is presided by a Chair, or a Vice-Chair in the HERCA Chairs absence.
    The members of the Board are expected to be Heads of their organizations or, if that is not possible, senior managers, authorised to take decisions on behalf of the Radiation Protection Authority, and to attend the Board meetings regularly.
  • Working groups (WG), Networks (NT) and Task Forces (TF) established by the Board to address issues of common interest.
  • A Technical Secretariat supporting the Board and the HERCA Chair, ensuring overall coordination and facilitation of all activities of HERCA.
  • Organisation of thematic Workshops (WS)

Compared to other existing networks in radiation protection, HERCA is composed of the Heads of the Authorities, persons who either have decision capacity or can at least have a major influence on policy and decisions within their country.
