IEER Correspondence with the BEIR VII Committee

The BEIR VII committee (Biological Effects of Ionizing Radiation) of the National Academy of Sciences is re-assessing the human health risks of exposure to ionizing radiation. Its work is likely to influence radiation standard setting processes, both for public and worker health protection. IEER has corresponded with the committee, verbally at public meetings and also in writing.
