The radiation protection culture corresponds to the set of knowledge and know-how allowing people to be informed, to behave and to make decision accordingly with regard to exposure situations involving ionizing radiation. In this perspective, the aim of the development of this culture is to provide people the means to understand the risk
The precautionary principle is one of the core values structuring the radiation protection system. Finding its roots in the Western tradition in the virtue of prudence developed by Aristotle, the concept of precaution can also be found in the Buddhist philosophy, the teaching of Confucius and in the ancient traditions of the peoples of

The need to further develop and disseminate ALARA culture comes at a moment in time where we see an increase of the awareness of the risk, new exposure situations to be managed as applications of ionising radiations increase by introducing new techniques, and scientific knowledge of the

In long-term contaminated territories, the interpretation of whole body monitoring results is not straightforward. In these territories, years after an accident, the ingestion of contaminated foodstuffs becomes the preponderant root of exposure...
Some Considerations from the NEA/CRPPH Expert Group on Occupational Exposure
This oral communication presents a summary of the OECD/NEA publication on 'Dose Constraint in Optimisation of Occupational Radiological Protection’. The main aims of this publication are to analyse countries’ and utilities’ experiences with interpretation and implementation of dose constraints in occupational radiation protection, in regulatory and operational frameworks as they were introduced in the ICRP Publ. 60; to discuss operational and regulatory issues associated with their
