Abstract–This report compiles the various numerical protection level values published by the
International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP) since its 1990 Recommendations
(Publication 60). Several terms are used to denominate the protection levels: individual
dose limit, ‘maximum’ individual dose, dose constraint, exemption level, exclusion level, action
level, or intervention level. The reasons provided by the Commission for selecting the
associated numerical values is quoted as far as available. In some cases the rationale is not
totally explicit in the original ICRP report concerned; in such cases the Task Group that
prepared the present report have proposed their own interpretation.
Originally, this report was prepared by a Task Group at CEPN, a French research and
development centre, on behalf of IRSN, a French public expert body engaged in radiological
protection and nuclear safety. It is published here with kind permission by CEPN and IRSN.
