The analysis of radiological protection at Kori Nuclear Unit #1, which started commercial operation on April 29, 1978, has been carried out in three areas, namely, radiation exposure, radioactive waste disposal and environmental management. The analysis results for radiation exposure and radioactive effluent releases appear to increase gradually with plant operating years. On the other hand, the apex of radiation exposure and radioactive effluent releases was in 1983 and 1982 respectively and then decreased or stabilized. Also, the operation environmental radioactivity seems to be no higher than preoperation environmental radioactivity.
