International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP) is currently calling for public comments for its draft report "Radiological Protection of People and the Environment in the Event of a Large Nuclear Accident".
>ICRP's website

Answering to it, Friends of the Earth Japan submitted a comment which points out that the Japanese government used the existing ICRP Publications (recommending “the lower part of the 1–20 mSv/year band” with 1 mSv/year being a typical value in the long-term) only partially—and calculatedly—in choosing the threshold value for delineating the evacuation zone.
We must recognize that the ICRP Publications 109 and 111 actually failed to protect Fukushima residents from radiation exposure as well as their rights to choose whether to stay, evacuate, or return.
