Stopped and prepared-for-decommissioning MR and RFT multi-loop materials-research reactors are sources of radiation danger. The radiation protection was optimized to secure radiation safety for workers and the public during decommissioning of the reactors. This lowered significantly the individual and collective effective radiation dose to workers and reduced the number of workers required for radiation-hazardous work.
