UK Health Protection Agency (HPA) Comparison of Processes and Procedures
for Setting Standards - Chemicals, Ionising Radiation, Non-ionising
J R Cooper, R Fielder, R Jefferson, J R Meara, K R Smith and J W Stather
This document seeks to compare the different approaches needed to set
standards of protection concerning the adverse health effects of
exposure to ionising radiation, non-ionising radiation and noxious
chemical agents. It is therefore a scientific foundation document and
does not provide specific health-related recommendations. To the
knowledge of the Health Protection Agency (HPA) this is the first time
that such a detailed comparison has been made. For this reason, senior
management of the HPA Centre for Radiation, Chemical and Environmental
Hazards wish to issue the document in order to obtain comments on the
scientific elements of the judgements made.
The document will be retained on the HPA website for three months and
comments should be sent to Dr John Cooper (john.cooper at hpa-rp.org.uk).
The authors will consider these comments and will take account of those
comments that are judged to improve understanding of the topic.
Publication of the final document is planned for the end of February
The abstract to the document is given below.
