Publication 137, Occupational Intakes of Radionuclides Part 3, Now Available


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).
