International Standards

ICRP is the International Commission on  Radiological Protection.  It is an independent, international organisation established in 1928, now with more than 200 volunteer members from approximately 30 countries across 6 continents. These members represent the leading scientists and policy makers in the field.  ICRP has developed, maintained and elaborated the International System of Radiological Protection used worldwide as the common basis for standards, legislation, guidelines, programmes and practice. The organisation has launched ICRPaedia, a new online tool to help readers of all levels better understand their work.  Annals of the ICRP is ICRP's authoritative source of recommendations and guidance.  All issues other than the most recent two years are freely available.
