Radiological protection - Procedures for monitoring the dose to the lens of the eye, the skin and the extremities

active, Most Current
Organization: CEN
Publication Date: 1 October 2017
Status: active
Page Count: 36
ICS Code (Radiation protection): 13.280
scope:

This International Standard provides procedures for monitoring the dose to the skin, the extremities, and the lens of the eye. It gives guidance on how to decide if such dosemeters are needed and to ensure that individual monitoring is appropriate to the nature of the exposure, taking practical considerations into account. National regulations, if they exist, provide requirements that need to be followed.

This International Standard specifies procedures for individual monitoring of radiation exposure of the skin, extremities (hands, fingers, wrists, forearms, feet and ankles), and lens of the eye in planned exposure situations. It covers practices which involve a risk of exposure to photons in the range of 8 keV to 10 MeV and electrons and positrons in the range of 60 keV to 10 MeV.

This International Standard gives guidance for the design of a monitoring program to ensure compliance with legal individual dose limits. It refers to the appropriate operational dose quantities, and it gives guidance on the type and frequency of individual monitoring and the type and positioning of the dosemeter. Finally, different approaches to assess and analyse skin, extremity, and lens of the eye doses are given.

It is not in the scope of this International Standard to consider exposure due to alpha or neutron radiation fields.
