Health Physics Society (HPS) President Nancy P. Kirner provided comments to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) in response to petitions regarding the linear no-threshold model and standards for protection against radiation.
The letter refers to two HPS position statements "which strongly support the petitioners' requests for a re-evaluation of the basis for U.S. radiation protection standards, and one position that affirms that the current dose limits are adequate . . .". The position statements are included in the comments sent to the NRC.
