French laboratories involved in lung measurements of actinides have decided to initiate an intercalibration circuit as an easier intermediate step of quality assurance, by using a well characterized phantom to make a detailed comparison of the measuring procedures. Thirteen facilities from nine laboratories took part in this intercalibration. The first phase has been completed. The response of instrumentation and detectors with respect to metrological parameters and measurements on Livermore phantoms will be presented in this paper. Current efforts are being directed toward the redaction of consistent procedures and will be also discussed.
