 Definition of man made sources is presented in dynamics starting from the time of ionizing radiation discovery. Change of radiation safety standards is shown by different periods. Circle of individuals involved in contact with man made irradiation is described in dependence on condition of work or residence. Possibilities of quantities evaluation of safety standards keeping are shown. It is characteristic that not only standards are decreased to practically safe level but possibility of their keeping is achieved. That makes actual the role of non-radiation factors. Necessity of significant changes in planning of radiobiological and radiation medicine researches become evident. Study of input of non-radiation factors is very important. The favorable dynamic in exposure levels on territories contaminated previously demand review of their categorizations. Necessity of adequate information on the radiation risk estimation is important as a significant psychological factor.

Key words: man made exposure, doses’ dynamic, main periods, safety standards, actual doses, addressee of information, minimum of information to everybody
