Intercomparison of personal monitoring services in the Asian/Pacific region. Final report for the period 15 June 1991 - 14 June 1992

Technical Report:

Abstract

The Australian Radiation Laboratory in 1991 conducted an International Intercomparison of Personal Radiation Monitoring Services in the Asia/Pacific region. Twenty-nine (29) organizations from sixteen (16) countries took part in the study. Both thermoluminescent dosemeters (TLD) and conventional film badge dosemeters were submitted for evaluation. The intercomparison involved participants submitting 25 dosemeters including transit controls to the Australian Radiation Laboratory for exposure. Seven radiation beams of varying beam quality were used. Both film dosemeters and TLDs were irradiated with {sup 137}Cs gamma rays, X-rays and 2.0 MeV maximum energy beta rays from a {sup 90}Sr/{sup 90}Y source. The delivered dose equivalents were in the range 0.2 to 9 mSv. The majority of participants underestimated both the superficial and penetrating dose equivalents. The scatter in results was greatest for the X-ray beam qualities. 25 refs, 7 figs, 6 tabs.
