The objective of this Task Group is the coordination of research studies on biokinetic models and the evaluation of the implications of new biokinetic models on dose assessment and safety standards. For this the new ICRP models, which will be used for a revision of ICRP Publications 30, 54, 68 and 78, are implemented into six different computer codes in five European countries and quality assured by intercomparison procedures. The work has started with the implementation of the new ICRP Alimentary Tract Model. New systemic models and the new NCRP wound model will follow. The work also includes the evaluation of experimental results in terms of formulation by the new model structures and a quality assurance of model formulation.
Bibliographical noteFunding Information:
The concerted action ‘A Coordinated Network for Radiation Dosimetry’ (CONRAD)(1) is funded within the EURATOM 6th Framework Programme for research and training in nuclear energy (contract no. FI6R-012684). The project involves two main activities to maintain and enhance competence in radiation protection dosimetry: It analyses the options for sustainable networks linking research players and end users and it coordinates research concerning measurements and calculations for radiation protection at workplaces. It started at the beginning of 2005 and it has been running for 3 y.
