Clearance level recommendations from the German Commission on Radiological Protection for metal equipment and scrap: Derivation of clearance levels

Conference:

Abstract

In Germany the peaceful use of nuclear power is regulated by the German Atomic Energy Act and its ordinances. The exemption of radioactive material from the system of regulatory control is governed by the Radiation Protection Ordinance, which also entails surface specific clearance levels for material leaving regulatory control. No mass specific clearance levels are prescribed, but recommendations from the German Commission on Radiation Protection have been published. The clearance of material from a nuclear site is made on a case by case basis within a licensing procedure. Release is only allowed if it can be shown to be ``non-detrimental``. The authorities in Germany have come to a common understanding of the non-detrimental clause in the Atomic Energy Act and interpret it to mean the ``de-minimis``, which recommends an individual effective dose of 10{mu}Sv/a for a single practice. A discussion of the clearance level recommendations, which are based on the ``de-minimis`` concept, are presented. (author). 21 refs, 2 figs, 2 tab.
