Abstract

A working group of the Belgian Society for Radiation Protection (BVS-ABR) made comments on the ICRP draft recommendations in 2004 and 2006. The draft recommendations of 12 January 2007 take into account several of our comments. On some other comments clarification is given. An overview of the follow up of our comments is given in the presentation with particular attention to naturally occurring radionuclides, radon, protection of the environment and medical exposure. In order to illustrate the growing importance of medical exposure in Belgium, some data of the environmental report of Flanders are presented.
