The monitoring of potential incorporations of occupationally exposed workers in Germany. I. The regulatory system for incorporation monitoring.
In Germany a new standard has been defined for the monitoring of workers occupationally exposed to radioactive material.
The German govemment adopted three guidelines which define general rules for the monitoring of exposures, regulate the assessment of exposures by incorporated radiation emitters and set the requirements measuring laboratories have to fulfill.
The purpose of the approach was to establish a consistent system, that 1. defines clear criteria for the necessity of routine and special monitoring programs, 2. ensures that dose assessments are as reliable as necessary, 3. standardizes as far as possible the procedures of dose assessments, and 4. guarantees the necessary quality standards.
In accordance with the underlying Radiation Protection Ordinance the scientific basis of this regulatory system is formed by the publications 30,48 and 54 of ICRP, but the structure easily allows the adoption of more recent knowledge.
