United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission - Protecting People and the Environment

TH27 Radiation Protection and Health Studies

The field of radiation protection has made significant advances in the last few decades, and these advances have various regulatory implications for potential occupational and public exposures. This session will address topics related to radiation protection research, including an update on the National Academies of Science study on cancer risk in populations living near nuclear facilities, an update on Russian Health Study, and an update on the One Million U.S. Radiation Workers and Veterans study. This session will also include information on the effects of the International Commission on Radiation Protection Publication 103 on 10 CFR Part 20, "Standards for Protection against Radiation", and the recently revised International Basic Safety Standards.
