The 2003 International Information System on Occupational Exposure ALARA Symposium took place in Orlando, Florida, USA on 12-15 January 2003. The symposium provided a global forum for the exchange of ideas and management approaches to maintaining occupational radiation exposures "as low as reasonably achievable" (ALARA). A feature of the 2003 symposium was a special session on radiological work management practices that have achieved shorter refueling outages and occupational dose reduction. Effective methods for planning, scheduling, training and managing refueling and service outages were also highlighted. The complete proceedings of the symposium are currently in preparation. More information on the ISOE is available at www.oecd-nea.org/jointproj/isoe.html.
The NEA has been active in seeking ways to improve the existing system of radiological protection, as set out in the recommendations of the International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP). Its latest work in this area is an analysis of new draft ICRP recommendations for their possible implications on the regulation and application of radiological protection. The Expert Group on the Implications of ICRP Recommendations (EGIR) held its second and final meeting in January, and will present its results to the NEA Committee on Radiation Protection and Public Health (CRPPH) for review and comment before their presentation at the NEA-ICRP Forum in April 2003. The associated EGIR report will also be published and submitted to the ICRP and the international community for consideration. More information on the EGIR is available at www.oecd-nea.org/rp/egir.html.
