New to This Edition
ICRP Publication 82 addresses the general application of the ICRP System of Protection to the control of prolonged exposures resulting from practices and to the undertaking of interventions in prolonged exposure situations. It also recommends generic reference levels for such interventions. The report considers some issues that have been of concern, including natural radiation sources that may cause high doses; restoration and rehabilitation of sites where radioactive substances have been handled or used; the return to 'normality' following an accident that has released radioactive substances; and the global marketing of commodities for public consumption that contain radioactive substances. Annexes provide some examples of prolonged exposure situations and describe the radiological protection quantities, radiation-induced health effects, and aspects of the ICRP System of Protection relevant to prolonged exposure.
