The experience gained in measuring radon in homes in Ireland over the past 20 years is used to identify four key strategic decisions that need to be made in designing and implementing a successful program. These are (1) the need to address both individual and collective dose; (2) the type of radon mapping that needs to be undertaken; (3) the criteria to be considered in setting a reference level; and (4) a policy of information and advice versus enforcement. Each of these issues is discussed from a policy viewpoint and the radon situation in Ireland is used to support the arguments made.
