This document summarises the induced activity dose rates predicted for the CMS experiment at the CERN LHC collider. The computational methods are shortly described and some comparisons to experimentaldata are given. The shielding optimisation of the most activated object – the CMS forward calorimeter – is described in great detail in order to illustrate the methods. The dose rates around other components of CMS are presented, followed by some discussion about need and possible implementation of shielding measures.
