  • RADIATION PROTECTION OPTIMIZATION 'ADVANCES IN PRACTICAL IMPLEMENTATION' PROCEEDINGS OF THE THIRD EUROPEAN SCIENTIFIC SEMINAR HELD IN MADRID 12 TO 14 SEPTEMBER 1988

Abstract

Within the Community, protection against the danger of ionising radiation is regulated in conformity with the provisions of two Council Directives. One is of general application for all activities involving a hazard arising from ionising radiation and lays down the basic safety standards for the health protection of the general public and workers against the dangers of ionising radiation. The other lays down the basic measures for the radiation protection of persons undergoing medical examination or treatment. The seminar allowed an analysis of the progress made since the previous seminars of 1979 and 1983, in the practical implementation of the optimisation principle (Alara), in relation to the design and operation of nuclear and industrial installations, natural radioactivity, medical practices and countermeasures. The report contains the 20 original contributions presented and some general considerations on the results of the seminar.
