Summary

The system of radiological protection is mainly resulting from consensus reached at international level. The process involves several organisations such as UNSCEAR, ICRP, IAEA, OECD/NEA and Euratom, etc. Amongst them, ICRP publishes general recommendations which are followed by regulatory agencies (IAEA, Euratom) and then by national authorities. In March 2007, after 9 years of an open-process, ICRP adopted new recommendations which will supersede those in its Publication 60 (1991). The main innovation is the end of a two-speed system (practices versus intervention) to a single approach in all the exposure situations (planned, emergency and existing) based on the constrained optimisation. After ICRP, IAEA (jointly with other international bodies) and Euratom started a process to revise their own basic safety standards.
