The National Recording Preservation Board (NRPB) at the Library of Congress (LC) was established through the National Recording Preservation Act of 2000.
He began with a stinging critique of the NRPB's 1943 recommendations for extending public enterprise.
Though public institutions, libraries and archives hold some 46 million recordings, few of them know the extent of their holdings or their condition or have the technical means to preserve them, the NRPB says.

The ICRP (13) proposed the concept of an investigation level for radiation exposures in radiology and, in 1996, recommended the use of DRLs (14); in the early 1990s, the National Radiological Protection Board (NRPB) in the United Kingdom published excellent guidance notes (15) on the principles and application of DRLs; the Commission of the European Communities (CEC) has provided reference values and encourages their use in guidance documents (16); and, in the United States, the ACR established guidelines for the adoption and use of DRLs.
He said, 'A recent report by the National Radiological Protection Board (NRPB) concluded, 'that while there is no hard evidence that mobile phone masts pose a health threat, particular attention should be given to minimise the exposure of potentially vulnerable groups, such as children, who may be particularly sensitive to radio waves'.
Sir William, head of the National Radiological Protection Board (NRPB) said "on a precautionary basis" strong consideration should be given over mast siting.
Even now, she works closely with the NRPB and other agencies to ensure firms are doing their utmost to prevent leaks.
The National Radiological Protection Board (NRPB) guidance notes state that gonad protection should be implemented whenever possible, (6) and ideally in all radiological procedures.
