To develop a report that describes and clarifies the application of the Commission’s Recommendations on radiological protection of workers, the public, and environment to activities involving mobile high activity sources.
The scope of the report will cover uses of sealed sources in industrial radiography, and other instances in which high activity sources are used in a mobile setting, rather than fixed location. Radiological protection in such situations is unique because the prevailing circumstances are constantly changing, and the location and control of individuals is not defined by any permanent structures or shielding. Further, the circumstances are often complex, with a variety of geometries, constantly changing locations, access restrictions, and environmental conditions such as limited workspaces, vertical heights, working at night, and weather.
The report proposal is the result of solicitation of interest from ICRP Special Liaison Organisations, and was suggested by the European ALARA Network (EAN) and the International Radiation Protection Association (IRPA).
Target audience includes users.
