The International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP)

The International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP) was established in 1928 and since then has developed, maintained and elabo­rated the International System of Radiological Protection used worldwide as the common basis for radiological protection standards, legislation, guidelines, programmes and practice. At present the ICRP recommenda­tions are based on the input from UNSCEAR, the current understanding of scientific data and also taking into account the societal and ethical aspects.

xAt present the UNSCEAR committee comprises 27 countries (Argentina, Australia, Belarus, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, Egypt, Finland, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Japan, Mexico, Pakistan, Peru, Poland, South Korea, Russia, Slovakia, Spain, Sudan, Sweden, Ukraine, United Kingdom, United States of America).

The latest revised Recommendations for a System of Radiological Protec­tion 2007 [7] formally replaced the Commission ’s previous, 1990, Recom­mendations [8]; and update, consolidate and develop the additional guidance on the control of exposure from radiation sources issued since 1990.

ICRP is an independent international organisation with more than 200 volunteer members (leading scientists and policy makers in the field of radiological protection) from approximately 30 countries [9].
