Government Gave Green Light to Form Unified System to Monitor and Record Individual Doses
The Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine approved the Procedure to Form a Unified State System for Monitoring and Accounting Individual Exposure Doses and Relevant Action Plan developed by the SNRIU. Relevant Resolution No. 1141 was issued on 18 November 2020.
The central element of the system will be the State Register of Radiation Sources and Individual Exposure Doses to be developed on the basis of the relevant register, which accounts radiation sources currently.
The Regulations on the State Register of Radiation Sources, Individual Exposure Doses and Procedure for Payment for Registration Services, which is attached to the document, indicates that the register will be kept by the Isotop in its information and computer accounting system.
Registration of individual exposure doses of a person will be free of charge through informing the SNRIU interregional territorial bodies by nuclear entities.
Entities will have to determine, control and account individual doses of occupational exposure for workers using own resources or involving technical support organizations (laboratories).
“The formation of a unified system for monitoring and accounting individual exposure doses … will contribute to radiation safety improvement during nuclear energy use, ensure control over non-exceeding the main dose limits, boundary doses and reference exposure levels established for relevant categories in planned, existing and emergency exposure situations, will ensure personnel exposure optimization”, the SNRIU noted.
According to the Action Plan for Forming a Unified State System for Monitoring and Accounting Individual Exposure Doses it is planned to put the State Register of Radiation Sources and Individual Exposure Doses into operation during the IV quarter of 2022.
