Credible
The term 'credible' is used in a number of areas of Radiation Protection , including Risk Assessments , Safety Cases and Probabilistic Safety Assessments . Credible can be taken to mean an incident or accident which is thought to be Reasonably Foreseeable . Credible can be expressed numerically and this value will differ depending on the situation being assessed (but perhaps in the range of 10-5 to 10-6).
