Detail

The Advisory Group on Ionising Radiation (AGIR) is a body that advised the then Health Protection Agency (now Public Health England) on the biological and medical effects of ionising radiation relevant to human health. AGIR set up a subgroup on tritium, with a remit to take into account a wide range of views and provide a scientifically sound consensus on the doses and risks resulting from internal exposure to tritium.

This report presents the views of the subgroup on tritium internal dosimetry of AGIR.
