9780080422053: ICRP Publication 64: Protection from Potential Exposure: A Conceptual Framework

The ICRP, in its 1990 Recommendations, divided situations affecting radiation exposure of individuals into two broad categories: practices and intervention. The basic principles of radiation protection are applied to these categories in different ways. In the case of practices, the principles are applied to the addition of radiation risk caused by the introduction or modification of practices, whilst for intervention they are applied to the subtraction or reduction of pre-existing radiation exposure. Radiation exposure which might result from the introduction of a practice is also divided into two broad categories: normal exposure and potential exposure. Normal exposure is that exposure which can reasonably be expected to occur, i.e., the exposure is predicted to occur with a probability of one or near one, independent of the time when the exposure occurs. Potential exposure is exposure that, while not certain to occur, can be anticipated as a result of introducing or modifying a practice and to which a probability of occurrence can be assigned. The purpose of this report is to elaborate upon the principles and objectives of ICRP recommendations as they relate to potential exposure; explain basic concepts, terminology and methodologies associated with application of the recommendations; and to provide general guidance on its practical application. The report is intended to provide a basis for the preparation of more detailed guidance related to specific practices.

Review:

1993 Overall this report provides a highly readable account of techniques for establishing protection from potential exposures. It will be of equal interest to both operators and regulators, as well as forming a useful reference for students of radiological protection -- H.F. Macdonald, Radiation Protection Dosimetry Vol 48, No 4

February 1994 The report serves as an excellent summary of ICRP philosophy and approaches to protection against potential exposures. -- Kenneth L. Mossman, Health Physics
