ICRP Publication on Large Nuclear Accidents Free to Access amid Concerns about Military Action in Ukraine


Given the significant concern about military action around the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant, and the possibility of similar activity around other NPPs in Ukraine, the International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP), in partnership with SAGE publishing UK, has made ICRP Publication 146 Radiological Protection of People and the Environment in the Event of a Large Nuclear Accident immediately free to access. Although this publication was not specifically intended to cover radioactive releases due to military action, the principles and guidance provided should be helpful should such an unfortunate event occur. We hope this helps those responsible for planning the response to a large nuclear accident to be better prepared, and that it will not be necessary to put these plans into action.
