Abstract

This Good Practice Guide has been written by a working party of experts from the UK Ionising Radiation Metrology Forum. It describes procedures and methods for assessing radiation levels, outlines the thought processes needed to carry out the measurements and gives practical advice. The methods described are general and based on currently accepted good practice.
We hope the document will standardise the approach to radiation monitoring. We feel the document is meant for everybody involved in radiation measurement, as a refresher for those who know, and as a guide for those who don’t, particularly new entrants to the field.
The current statutory requirements for the designation, control and monitoring of areas are stated in the Ionising Radiation Regulations, 19991. In order to comply with the statutory requirements all employers who work with ionising radiation must ensure that radiation areas are adequately monitored by suitably qualified and experienced people, using instruments able to measure the type of radiation present.
The procedures described in this Guide are for general application; different procedures may be used if appropriate but guidance on these must be obtained from a Radiation Protection Advisor.
