The Scientific Committee was established in 1955 by resolution 913(X) of the General Assembly with a mandate to assess sources of exposure and to report on levels and effects of radiation on human health and the environment. The Committee reports annually to the General Assembly of the United Nations on the progress and outcomes of its scientific evaluations which provide an independent scientific basis for decisions on radiation-related issues.
