With the development of nuclear technology industry, irradiation sterilization has become an interna-tionally used sterilization method for health care products. But it is difficult to choose the appropriate methods and procedures of radiation sterilization dose setting for health care products by using international standard ISO11137-2: 2013. The sterilization dose setting methods and procedures in ISO11137-2: 2013 are divided into 12 sub categories according to 5 key factors of difference and based on which the screening table of sterilization dose setting methods is developed. The screening table can help users to make a quick and appropriate choice when dealing with sterilization dose setting method choosing problem for a brand new health care product and find the corresponding experimental procedures.

Key words: Radiation sterilization, Dose setting methods, Strategy of choosing, Screening table
