The International Commission on Radiological Protection
was founded in 1928 to advance for the public benefit the science of radiological protection
. The ICRP provides recommendations and guidance on protection against the risks associated with ionising radiation
, from artificial sources as widely used in medicine
, general industry
enterprises, and from naturally occurring
sources. These reports and recommendations are published four times each year on behalf of the ICRP as the journal Annals of the ICRP
. Each issue provides in-depth coverage of a specific subject area.
