The accident at Chernobyl led different countries to evaluate the levels to which their populations had been exposed. In the first stage, such evaluations required the establishment of models whose aim is to predict short-term consequences of such accidents. In the second stage, measures confirming the predictions provided by the models make possible the estimation of long-term consequences. It seems relevant to undertake a comparison of the different techniques for calculating and measuring which have been used in the different countries of the EEC. This shows the difficulties of comparing the estimates which have been carried out.
