The South African Radiation community is represented by two associations, namely Southern African Radiation Protection Association (SARPA) and the South African Radiation Protection Society (SARPS). These two associations form a body called the South African Radiation Protection Coordinating Body (SARPCOB) which is the International Radiation Protection (IRPA) affiliated body for South Africa.

SARPA was established in September 1997 as an independent association to serve the objectives and profession of radiation protection, not only in South Africa, but also in the broader Southern African region.

The interest of SARPA is currently being served by a annually elected executive committee consisting of 160 corporate members and 15 institutional members.
