At the remote period after the Chernobyl accident problems, which define the adequacy of decision for radiation safety, is a correct evaluation of doses of the population, living in the contaminated areas. A method for assessing the average annual effective internal dose of residents of the settlements located on contaminated territories was developed. The method is based on the classification of settlements according to the regional migration characteristics of soils, population size and forest area around the settlement, as well as the regression dependence of the internal dose calculated on WB-measurements in each class. According to the developed method, a Catalogue of Average Annual Effective Doses of Residents of Belarus has been established. The Catalogue along with the density of soil contamination of the settlements is the basis for next in turn document of the Council of Ministers of Belarus for classification of the settlements by zones of radioactive contamination.
