The intercomparison exercise on internal dose assessment has been carried out for the purpose of the evaluation for harmonization of internal dosimetry between the nuclear-related institutes in Korea. The exercises of 9 items on internal dose assessment have been developed for the unknown internal dosimetric parameters such as the intake pathway, absorption type, AMAD, and intake time of a radionuclide. Solutions to these exercises were reported by 7 participants from 5 institutes. The range of the ratio between the individual values and the geometric mean value of the evaluated doses for the exercises was $5.75{\times}10^{-4}$ ~ 9.81. But without the extreme partial solution, the range of the ratio was 0.216 ~ 3.12.
