Recommendations on Protection: Dissemination of International Radiation Results (RECOIL), Environmental radiation protection, Final report (summary)

Project ID: 516539
Funded under: FP6-EURATOM-NUCHORIZ

Abstract

So far, radiological protection recommendations have focused on protection of man. No internationally agreed criteria or policies address protection of the environment from
radiation, and it is difficult to determine whether non-human species are adequately protected. The purpose of the RECOIL project is to develop a systematic approach to fill this conceptual gap. This is done by disseminating results obtained in the FASSET and ERICA projects of the Fifth and Sixth Euratom Framework Programmes and adapting and converting this information into recommendations and advice in a format suitable for regulators.
