The next installment in the series of Occupational Intakes of Radionuclides (OIR) reports is now published.
The OIR series provides committed effective dose per intake (Sv Bq-1 intake) for inhalation and ingestion, committed effective dose per content (Sv Bq-1 measurement) for inhalation, and graphs of retention and excretion data per Bq intake for inhalation. An electronic annex contains a comprehensive set of committed effective and equivalent dose coefficients, committed effective dose per content functions, and reference bioassay functions.
OIR 1 (Publication 130) describes the assessment of internal occupational exposure to radionuclides, biokinetic and dosimetric models, methods of individual and workplace monitoring, and general aspects of retrospective dose assessment.
OIR 2 (Publication 134) provides data on radionuclides of: hydrogen (H), carbon (C), phosphorus (P), sulphur (S), calcium (Ca), iron (Fe), cobalt (Co), zinc (Zn), strontium (Sr), yttrium(Y), zirconium (Zr), niobium (Nb), molybdenum (Mo), and technetium (Tc).
OIR 3 (Publication 137) provides data on radionuclides of: ruthenium (Ru), antimony (Sb), tellurium (Te), iodine (I), caesium (Cs), barium (Ba), iridium (Ir), lead (Pb), bismuth (Bi), polonium (Po), radon (Rn), radium (Ra), thorium (Th), and uranium (U).
