English term or phrase:National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements
I am doing a translation for an X-ray device.
I would like to know what the Dutch equivalent for this institution is.
national council on radiation protection and measurements
nationale/landelijke raad voor stralingsbescherming en -metingen
Explanation: I worked for years at a university reactor centre in The Netherlands, and as far as I know there is no such council in this country. My advice would be to retain the source term as a proper noun, and offer a literal translation like the one above as an "aside", e.g. in a footnote or in parentheses.
