The second round of public consultation on the draft next Recommendations of the ICRP is now completed. ICRP is delighted at the overwhelming response, and grateful to the many organisations and individuals all over the world who have contributed detailed and very constructive comments. ICRP will now amend the draft in the light of the comments received. After these amendments, a 'near-final' version will probably be posted here for a brief period of information, probably in January. The final version is expected to be published in 2007.
