Proposal for the classification of closed indoor spaces according to concentration of {sup 222}Rn and the possible doses involved; Propuesta para la clasificacion de los espacios interiores cerrados por su concentracion de Rn-222 y las posibles dosis involucradas

Abstract

Radon causes more than 50 % of total dose from natural background radiation per year. It is widely demonstrated the capacity of radon to induce lung cancer in people exposed to this radioactive gas for long periods. Radon emerges continuously from materials that constitute soils, building materials and minerals present in our natural environment, all over the world. In our country, it is necessary to get better regulations to control the exposition of people to this gas inside buildings, dwellings and facilities where people spend their time. Our country has very simple and scarce regulations on this respect. At present, national regulations about radon are adaptations of recommendations and guides published for international organizations but without national studies or statistics to give realistic support to those rules. This work propose a classification for closed spaces where people live and work in this country taking into consideration their {sup 222}Rn concentration and probable doses involved. (authors).
