He was the Secretary General of the Asian and Oceanic Association for Radiation Protection (2010-2014), the Secretary of International Affairs Committee of Japan Health Physics Society (2013-2015), and a member of International Collaboration Committee of U.S. Health Physics Society (2015-2018). Since 2019, Dr. Ogino has been a member of ICRP Task Group 114 on Reasonableness and Tolerability in the System of Radiological Protection, a member (alternate) of the IAEA Radiation Safety Standards Committee (RASSC), a member of the IAEA Topical Group on Radiation Protection and Transport Safety (RTTG) of the Asian Nuclear Safety Network (ANSN), and a member of Expert Group on International Recommendations (EGIR) of Committee on Radiological Protection and Public Health (CRPPH) of the OECD Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA).
