EURADOS WG2 – Survey of Individual Monitoring Services (IMS) - Extended deadline 30 April
The EURADOS Working Group 2 – Harmonization of Individual Monitoring in Europe – has launched a Survey of Individual Monitoring Services (IMS).
This survey was developed in collaboration with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) TC85/SC2/WG19 “Individual monitoring of external radiation”. This working group elaborates standards dealing with personal dosimetry such as, for instance, the ISO-14146 standard giving criteria and performance limits for the periodic evaluation of dosimetry services and the ISO-21909 standard to type-test the passive neutron dosemeters. ISO/TC85/SC2/WG19 has now started to develop two new documents: one of them will impact directly IMSs by giving recommendations and requirements about:
- The calculation of the characteristic limits and the uncertainties,
- How to take into consideration background (subtraction…),
- The quality tests to check the stability of the treatment process,
That is why, it was decided with ISO/TC85/SC2/WG19 and EURADOS WG2 to use WG2 network and experience to conduct a survey in order to have an up-to-date photography of the routine practices. So, as a first stage, we need to collect data on different practices and concerns.
You will need about 1 hour to complete it. Please note that the data are recorded, so you can fill it in several times if you wish.
More details about the context / outputs / data security policy / technical issues, please read the invitation letter below. For any queries, please send an email to marie-anne [dot] chevallier [at] irsn [dot] fr ().

1/ You will need about 1 hour to complete it (could be less, depending on the different topics you are concerned or not). Please note that the data are recorded, so you can fill it in several times if you wish, provided you use the same link and same IP address.
2/ Moreover, you can prepare beforehand some data concerning the numbers of dosimeters issued per year and per type, in order to fasten and ease the completion of the questionnaire.
We would be most grateful for your participation and your collaboration!
