¦ € 9.50 ¦ Date published: 1988


The need for a consistent international approach to exclusion and exemption of radiation sources and practices from regulatory control has become increasingly evident, especially for sources which may be transported from one country to another, such as consumer products containing very small amounts of radioactive material. This safety guide represents a first international consensus on the subject of exemption principles. It recommends a procedure which might be followed in implementing the IAEA/NEA(OECD)/ILO/WHO Basic Safety Standards for Radiation Protection.
