The responsibility for ensuring the safe operation of a radiation safety program belongs to the Radiation Safety Committees (RSC). At UCLA, the RSC and the four subcommittees; the Academic Radiation Safety Committee (ARSC), the Clinical Operations Radiation Committee (CORSC), the Medical Radiation Safety Committee (MRSC), and the Radioactive Drug Research Committee (RDRC), are responsible for the policies and procedures pertaining to the use of radiation.

The RSC meets monthly on the third Thursday of the month.
