Will this be just another effort to politically ratchet up the
regulations and costs for "radiation protection" (including standard
bureaucratic fear-mongering) or an opportunity to apply advanced
technology to improve the balance between rad protection costs and
benefits for dosimeters and services?

Tender: Establishing European technical recommendations for monitoring
individuals exposed to external radiation
[Date: 2006-09-20]
The European Commission's Directorate General for Energy and Transport
has issued a call for tenders for the establishment of European
technical recommendations for monitoring individuals exposed to external

Workers occupationally exposed to ionising radiation are monitored by
the use of individual dosimeters. The respective radiation monitoring
recording and reporting systems have to fulfil specific requirements
concerning accuracy, performance and uncertainty. In this context, the
European Commission issued in 1994 technical recommendations for
monitoring individuals exposed to external radiation (Radiation
protection series No 73). In view of the rapid technological development
of radiation monitoring systems, these technical recommendations need to
be revised. The aim of this study contract is to establish new technical
recommendations, taking into consideration particularly the development
and introduction of electronic personal dosimeters EPD and computerised
national dose register. The technical recommendations are addressed to
Member State regulatory bodies aimed at laying down European wide common
criteria for approval of dosimeters and dosimeter services. The document
also forms the basis for a mandate to CEN/CENELEC and ISO for
establishing European and International norms and standards for
dosimeter systems.
