 Introduction
Taiwan Radiation Monitoring Station was established in 1974 as a subsidiary government agency under Atomic Energy Council to carry out monitoring of natural ionizing radiation in the environment and man-made ionizing radiation in the vicinity of nuclear power stations, nuclear research reactors, and nuclear waste facilities.

The station had been changed its name to Radiation Monitoring Center (RMC) by a law enacted by Parliament in 1996 to strengthen its role in monitoring the effect on the general public of the peaceful application of radioactive substances in Taiwan.
