Building on ICRP Publication 124 the Task Group will consider how radiological protection of the environment in implanted in the system of protection. The TG will use case studies to illustrate how protection principles should apply in the context of both humans and biota. Several case studies are available for existing and emergency exposure situations (e.g. Andreeva Bay, Mayak and Little Forest) along with the potential to learn lessons from the likes of Chernobyl and Fukushima.
Key topics to be addressed include:
The Task Group will interface with ongoing IAEA safety guide development on the different exposure situations.
