Work in Progress (Task Groups)

Most of the work of ICRP, in particular the development of reports to be published in Annals of the ICRP, is done by Task Groups. Often, a Task Group is established to develop a single publication, although some develop multiple publications. On occasion, a Task Group is established for other purposes, such as to prepare advice to the ICRP Main Commission.

When establishing new Task Groups, ICRP calls for expressions of interest for experts to complete the membership, and selects candidates based on these criteriaOpen opportunities to join Task Groups are listed on the ICRP website.
