Abstract

In April 1976 the IAEA and the WHO concluded a Working Arrangement concerning the establishment and operation of a network of Secondary Standard Dosimetry Laboratories, based on a relationship agreement between the two organizations of 1959.

In particular, it was agreed then that WHO would provide the secretariat for the Network and be responsible for the SSDL Advisory Group of experts, the terms of reference of which were laid down in a separate document. After about ten years of operation of the SSDL Network it was felt that revision of the Working Arrangement should be considered, taking care of the actual involvement of the two organizations in the project and providing a more fairly balanced share of responsibilities between the IAEA and WHO secretaries of the Network.

Upon recommendation of an SSDL Advisory Group which met in November 1984 the Directors General of IAEA and WHO appointed 6 scientists as members of a standing SSDL Scientific Committee. The appointment is for a period of three years. In its terms of reference the functions of this Committee are defined as follows: to provide technical advice to the Directors General of the IAEA and WHO regarding the programme of work of the IAEA/WHO Network of Secondary Standard Dosimetry Laboratories; to assist the Network Secretariat with scientific advice and to regularly review the work undertaken by members of the SSDL Network; to make recommendations on the techniques for carrying out intercomparisons between SSDLs; to advise and make recommendations on the techniques for establishing and maintaining traceability to the Primary Standard Dosimetry Laboratories; to review the metrological consistency within the SSDL Network; to evaluate and comment on the dissemination of information including format and content of the circular letters distributed among the SSDLs; to prepare annual reports to the Directors General of the IAEA and WHO on the Network of the SSDLs, including a review of the SSDL reports; to advise and assist in any other related matters which may be referred to the Committee by the Directors General of the IAEA and WHO.}
