Nuclear Power Plant Accident Briefing Products are similar to the Radiological Dispersal Devices (RDD) Briefing Products but have been extended to take into account the thyroid dose resulting from the inhalation of radioactive iodine. Either the thyroid dose or the whole-body Total Effective Dose (TED) may be used in the evacuation/sheltering product, depending on which produces the more limiting criteria. An additional product provides guidance on the administration of potassium iodide (KI).
