Former ICRP MC Member Greta Joy Dicus dies


ICRP regrets to announce that The Honorable Greta Joy Dicus, former member of the Main Commission of ICRP, passed away at the age of 66 years on 30 August after a period of illness. Greta had had a long career as a distinguished health physicist and as a public servant in the United States where, among many important tasks, she was one of the longest serving members of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and for a period in 1999 its Chairman. She was a member of the Main Commission of ICRP for its 2001-2005 term. Her input to the ICRP discussions, informed by her considerable regulatory and practical experience, as well as her kindness and great sense of humour, made her a greatly appreciated person, and she will be greatly missed.
