Abstract

In 2007, the European Commission has commissioned a group of Experts to undertake the revision of Report RP91 on “Criteria for Acceptability of Radiological (including Radiotherapy) and Nuclear Medicine Installations”, which will be published soon. This paper introduces the project and presents the methodology adopted to revise the acceptability criteria.
