The safety analysis for the design of the IFMIF accelerator facility is an ongoing task within the IFMIF project, and the radioprotection analysis is one of the main sections of this task. The high energy beam transport line is a very sensitive section since it contains intense radiation sources. This work presents the radiological analysis of its current layout, and the design of local radiation shields, in order to meet project dose limits. These limits are established to protect workers in neighboring rooms during operation and to ensure unrestricted access for maintenance operations.
