General guidelines for the estimation of committed effective dose from incorporation monitoring data

Objective

Doses from intakes of radionuclides cannot be measured but must be assessed from monitoring data. Such assessments require application of a model and estimation of the exposure time, material properties, etc. The aim is to develop guidelines to standardise assessments of internal doses, based on research into the assumptions made, and developed by a group of experts in consultation with potential users. Mathematical methods for assessing intakes from measurements will be studied, and improved methods developed. A database of intake cases will be compiled, and assessments made on a large number of the cases. From the results and other investigations, draft guidelines will be produced. A Workshop will be held to discuss and revise them. An inter comparison exercise on internal dose assessment will be held in which participants will follow the revised guidelines. A Workshop will be held to refine the guidelines, which will then be published.
