Proceedings of a conference, Sydney, Australia, 18–22 April 1988. The purpose of the conference was to exchange views on the principles of radiation protection, to highlight issues of current importance, to examine the problems encountered in applying the principles of radiation protection and, where possible, to identify generic solutions. The important topics covered were the interface between nuclear safety and radiation protection, practices exempted from regulatory control, a review of the dosimetry of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki survivors, derived intervention levels and the experience gained from the Chernobyl and Goiânia accidents. An additional feature of the conference was the inclusion of two key discussion sessions on the linear dose–response relationship and on education and training in radiation protection.
