The system of radiological protection
The International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP) was established by the second International Congress of Radiology (ICR) in 1928. Since its inception, the ICRP has been the one internationally recognized body responsible for recommending values of dose limits for exposure to ionizing radiation. Most of the national legislation relating to exposure to radiation is based on the recommendations of the ICRP.
