DOE-STD-1121-2008, Internal Dosimetry

Change Notice 1 October 2013

This technical standard is created to provide a resource for those engaged in the science and practice of internal dosimetry within the DOE complex. This standard defines minimum levels of acceptable performance and provides basic procedural guidelines for evaluating the internal radiation equivalent and effective dose that may be received by radiation workers from intakes of radionuclides.  This set of defined internal dosimetry performance criteria meets the requirements set forth in 10 CFR 835 for monitoring the workplace, for assessing internal radiation doses to workers at DOE facilities, and for recording and reporting requirements as they apply to internal dosimetry programs.
