In August 2018, the latest analysis of the UK National Registry for Radiation Workers (NRRW 3rd update) has been published. The NRRW studies have been published almost every ten years since the first analysis (1992). The series of NRRW aimed to analyse cancer risk from low dose occupational radiation exposure. This latest analysis is the study using third analysis data and an additional ten years of follow-up information, but did not include additionally dosimetry information. As the set of ten years lag period, only the risks of cancer were analysed, but excluding leukaemia risks owing to its lag period as two years. The same statistical methods were used in the series of NRRW study. This review provides an outline and summary of the key points of NRRW 3rd update. We denote introduction in chapter 1, summary in chapter 2, comparison with previous studies and other studies in chapter 3, discussion about results in chapter 4, meaning and limitation in chapter 5 and conclusion in chapter 6.
