Résumé

Within its occupational radiation protection programme, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) initiated and funded an international intercomparison exercise of personal dosemeters to determine the quantity personal dose equivalent in mixed neutron-photon radiation. The objectives of the intercomparison are to assess the capabilities of the dosimetry services in measuring the quantity Hp(10) in mixed neutron-gamma fields; to assist IAEA member states in achieving sufficiently accurate dosimetry; and, if necessary, to provide guidelines for improvements (not simply a test of the performance of the existing dosimetry service). The intercomparison is directed to passive dosemeters to determine, in mixed neutron-gamma radiation fields, either these two components separately or the total personal dose equivalent. The intercomparison consists of two phases: Phase I—Type-test intercomparison: irradiation in selected calibration fields and results used to improve dosimetric procedures of participating laboratories, where needed. Phase II—Simulated workplace field intercomparison: irradiation in radiation fields similar to those in workplaces as a final check of performance. The exercise revealed clear deficiencies in the methodology used by several laboratories and necessitated a detailed analysis of the existing discrepancies. This papers summaries the finding and conclusions for radiation fields similar to those found in nuclear industry.
