Radiation Protection Series G-1

Front cover - RPS G-1 Guide for Radiation Protection of the Environment (2015)

The purpose of the Guide is to provide best practice guidance on how to assess environmental exposures and demonstrate protection of the environment from the human activities that give rise to such exposures. This guidance is for use by industry, regulators and others, and will assist in promoting a nationally uniform approach and understanding of what is meant by protection of the environment from the harmful effects of ionising radiation.
