At the last IRPA conference in Buenos Aires (2008), the French nuclear safety authority (ASN) presented the approach implemented for the definition of a national doctrine related so the risk management during the post accidental period following a nuclear accident (so called “CODIRPA program”). The subject of the "Radiation Protection Practical Culture" was investigated in this framework, as identified as a key element of long-term rehabilitation of living conditions in territories

Since 1992, the Information System on Occupational Exposure (ISOE, see www.isoe-network.net), which was launched by the OECD Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA), has provided a forum for radiation protection professionals from nuclear electricity utilities and national regulatory authorities worldwide to share dose management information and operational experience to improve the optimisation of worker radiological protection at nuclear power plants. Since 1993, the International Atomic Energy
This course is designed for radiation protection professionals who are intersted in better understanding of the risk concepts contributing to the foundation of the radiation protection system.

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

In 2010, the NERIS Platform was established to combine organisations from the operational, the research and the stakeholder community interested in nuclear and radiological emergency response and recovery. By the end of 2011, 37 organisations from 20 countries have already joined the Platform

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...
