Summary and Info
This report was formulated in recognition of the fact that implementation of recommendations for the protection of workers and the public, as well as demonstration of compliance with the requirements of regulatory agencies, requires instrumentation and techniques for the measurement and evacuation of radiation fields and radioactive contamination. Proper calibration procedures are, of course, an essential requirement for effective measurement and evaluation. This report is focused on the calibration of portable instruments used in dose equivalent assessment and the evaluation of surface contamination. The report outlines the techniques and procedures necessary to characterize the desired responses of various survey instruments through appropriate calibration procedures.
