The improved use of collective dose following the 2007 ICRP recommendations is studied for nuclear and radiological emergency situations. To study the accumulation of low individual doses to the collective dose the collective dose is calculated as a function of the minimum individual dose for three cases including nuclear as well as radiological accidents. It is found that the use of collective dose in this way can have an added value in nuclear emergency preparedness and response in particular related to decisions on overall protective actions following an accident.
Key words: Nuclear and radiological emergency / collective dose / ICRP recommendations
