In Germany, the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) has asked the German Commission on Radiological Protection (SSK) to provide advice on the revision of the German “Radiological Fundamentals for Decisions on Measures for the Protection of the Population against Accidental Releases of Radionuclides” (Radiologische Grundlagen). A working group has been established to guide the preparation of a new version of that document. It was asked that the revision has to consider most relevant publications of international bodies such as ICRP, EC and IAEA. Therefore, the ICRP recommendations 103, 109 and 111 have to be considered together with the draft documents of the European Union and the IAEA Basic Safety Standards. Recommendations of working groups of NEA (WPNEM) as well as the EPAL working group of HERCA (Heads of European Radiological Protection Competent Authorities) will be also taken into account. Within the discussion it turned out that the practical application of the new recommendation for professionals working in the operational community is extremely important. As the current recommendations are widely accepted and operational all over Germany, it was investigated to which extent the current procedures can be taken over with minor modifications.
Key words: ICRP recommendation / practical application / operational procedure
