The idea to form MARPA was first muted in the Second RPO Conferences back in 1997. Since then a protem committee has formed to materialise this idea. Discussions were held from year to year to garner support of the would-be members. 

Eventually, on 19 Jun 2002, the registration of MARPA was successfully approved by the Department of Registrar and at the Fifth RPO Conferences held in Kuching on 15 September 2002, the first AGM of MARPA was carried out and the First Members of the Council/Board were elected.

In 2006, the International Radiation Protection Association(IRPA) has agreed to admit the MARPA  as their  associate societies. MARPA also has been accepted as the member of the Asian and Oceanic Association of Radiation Protection (AOARP).
