Great start.

Some suggestions: consider the Codex Alirientarius values and the ’09 ICRP 111 document.

Also, more background info would be greatly appreciated.

Wish I had more for you at this time, but the earthquake this morning did interfere with our review of your draft.

Tony, Heather,

Here is what I have collected so far. I have not gotten very far, but it will give us something to work from. I have been using the following references:

1. Accidental Radioactive Contamination of Human Food and Animal Feeds: Recommendations for State and Local Agencies.
2. RG 1.109, US NRC
3. IAEA Safety Standards Series, No. GS-R-2, Preparedness and Response for a Nuclear Radiological Emergency
4. Manual of PAGs and Protective Actions for Nuclear Incidents, EPA

I’ve attached some other documents as well. Call me when you are ready to talk. 301-247-7172.
