In this publication, a generic methodology has been developed which can be used for both screening and specific level assessments of the dose to the public caused by industrial treatment and/or domestic use of wood contaminated with long lived radionuclides in natural conditions of areas historically affected by major radioactive releases. The methodology can be also applied to determine the long lived radionuclide activity concentrations in wood which would not result in public exposure exceeding appropriate radiological standards.
