- The paper discusses results of recent international intercomparison exercises on internal dose assessments, status of up to date internal dosimetry methods and the radiological legislation developed and implemented in Korea, European Union and Ukraine. The system of radiation protection in Korea is based on the Korean Atomic Energy Regulatory Enforcement on Safety Standards (Ministry Notice No. 2001-2). The notice is based on the recommendations in ICRP Publication 60 (1990) and IAEA Basic Safety Standards (1996). But the full implementation of the notice by the end of the year 2002 is not required because of the socio-economic situation and inexperience in internal radiation dosimetry. Regulatory framework for internal radiation dosimetry is under development toward the full implementation of the notice from January 1, 2003. The system of radiation protection in Ukraine is based on the National radiation protection regulatory code NRBU-97. The code was developed and adopted in 1998 and replaced the Regulations of Former Soviet Union. The document is based on the ICRP Publication 60, Euratom Directive 96/29 and IAEA Basic Safety Standards (1996). The transitional period of 5 years (effected till January 2003) is established for implementation of all requirements of this new regulation. The system of radiation protection in the European Community is based on the Council Directive 96/29/Euratom, adopted in 1996 and enforced from 13 May 2000. Directive 96/29/Euratom has the status of the European law.
