The Task Group of Committee 4 was originally established to produce a report on methods of optimizing radiological protection other than cost-benefit analysis. As the work of the Task Group progressed, however, it became clear that it would be more useful to produce a report that considered all aspects of optimization, including cost-benefit. This report therefore considers various techniques and their application to problems at different levels of complexity.
For professional management at regulatory and operational levels where decisions on optimization are required.
