The revised recommendations of the ICRP in its Publication 60 have led to significant changes in attitudes and to a new culture of radiological protection. Lower dose limits and the requirement to ensure that exposure is as low as reasonably achievable means that detailed attention must be given to radiological aspects from design, through commissioning, operation and maintenance, to eventual decommissioning. In this book the authors discuss the complex solutions to the problems of dose reduction, involving a scientific approach to the understanding of the sources of exposure, good engineering in the design and operation of facilities and efficient management of radiation protection. The context is a nuclear industry under pressure to reduce costs and increase efficiency. It is ever more important therefore to ensure that radiological factors do not unduly constrain the operation of plant.Dose limits ICRP recommends a limit on effective dose of 20 mSv per year averaged over 5 years (100 mSv in 5 years), with the further provision that the effective dose should not exceed 50 mSv in any single year. The 5-year averaging periodanbsp;...
