Delivered

Dear Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency,

I request access under the Freedom of Information Act (1982) to radiation monitoring documents from the former Australian Radiation Laboratory (ARL) building at the University of Melbourne during the period 1978-1982. The Australian Radiation Laboratory moved to the current ARPANSA building in Yallambie in 1979. At some point during the period 1978-1982, radiation monitoring of the former building (Melbourne University building 164) was undertaken by the ARL. I request access to summary documents or reports from the monitoring of the building during this period. I also request access to summary documents or reports of monitoring of the building during this period undertaken by the University of Melbourne and provided to the ARL/ARPANSA.

Yours faithfully,

Else Kennedy
