Radiation protection of the general public and workers is growing in
importance as the peaceful uses of nuclear energy increase. Consequently,
legal and administrative provisions on radiation protection need to be con­
stantly revised to ensure that they are up to date and effective and, if
necessary, amendments must be introduced to keep pace with the latest scienti­
fic developments; this also applies to the Euratom Directive laying down the
basic safety standards for the health protection of the general public and
workers against the dangers of ionizing radiation, first adopted by the Council
of Ministers in 1959 and subsequently revised in 1962, 1966, 1976 and most
recently in 1980. Since this Directive is essentially based on the scientific
recommendations of the International Commission for Radiological Protection,
which are not in themselves necessarily suitable for direct incorporation into
the legal provisions, the most recent examination of the Euratom basic stan­
dards also takes account of the recommendations in ICRP publication 26; in the
system of dose limitation recommended in that publication particular importance
is attached to optimization in radiation protection; insofar as use of the
optimization mechanisms is recommended to ensure that individual exposures are
kept as low as is reasonably achievable.
This presupposes detailed discussions between those responsible for
protection and the teams specialized in the use of these methods. With this
in view, a number of methodological problems are being tackled under a
EURATOM-CEA contract of association.
In order to present and discuss the various conceivable methodological
approaches, the Commission organized jointly with the Commissariat à l'Energie
Atomique, France, a scientific seminar which took place from 3-5 October 1979
in Luxembourg.
This publication contains the papers given at the seminar and a full
account of all the discussions; it is an important contribution to scientific
awareness of the importance of optimizing radiation protection and should be a
useful reference document for anyone with responsibility for radiation protection
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who helped
make the meeting such a success.
