The results of the tenth NPL Environmental Radioactivity Comparison Exercise are reported. In general the level of performance is similar to previous comparisons but with a steady improvement for most nuclides. The reported data does suggest however that some analysts are still not making cascade summing corrections. Measurements of 238 Pu and 239 Pu still exhibit a low bias, and the lack of data returned for many ß-emitting nuclides make it difficult to assess performance levels.
