The Asia and the Pacific Regional ALARA Network (ARAN) was initiated by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in December 2007, to support the development of a sustainable regional network, which facilitates information, findings and data exchange and practical and cost effective implementation of the principle of optimization of radiation protection in participating countries. In July 2014, it entered into a suspension period without actual activities implementation. In consideration of its significance, the IAEA helped with the reactivation process of ARAN together with the China Institute for Radiation Protection (CIRP). On 6th May 2021, ARAN was successfully reactivated through a virtual meeting with the participation of countries in the region. On 10th November 2021, the first ARAN Management Board Meeting since its reactivation was held, where the Steering Committee was elected and the Terms and Conditions were approved.
