This document describes an initial radiological assessment methodology which may be used by the Environment Agencies and applicants for RSA 93 authorisations. The methodology allows assessment of the release of 100 radionuclides via the following routes: - air; - estuary/coastal water; - river/stream; - public sewer. Doses can be calculated for seven different groups of the public and to four age groups (including the fetus), who may receive doses as a result of discharges to these release routes. The methodology is based on dose per unit release (DPUR) data, which are combined with authorisation limits to calculate doses to members of the public. This document contains all the DPUR data required to carry out initial assessment calculations, and guidance on how to apply them, together with some example assessments.
