Project Summary

Topic: The project aims to initiate sustainable network for Individual Monitoring Service (IMS) in Asia-Pacific region.

Summary: Most of the Individual Monitoring Service (IMS) Laboratories in Asia-Pacific region provide Optically Stimulated Luminescence Dosimeter (OSLD) instead of film badge and TLD for passive personal dosimeter. The accuracy of personal dosimetry evaluation of the IMS Laboratory is needed to ensure safety uses of radioactive sources and radiation generators and to prevent the hazard of radiation to radiation workers and public. The crucial activity for IMS Laboratories in Asia-Pacific is to harmonize the ionizing radiation metrological standard and to trace the metrological standard to SI unit (Standard Dosimetry Laboratory). Therefore, the network for IMS Laboratories in Asia-Pacific should be establish and maintain for sharing experiences and exchange the information concerning to the radiation dosimetry among the economies, initiate the inter-laboratory comparison exercise for Personal Dose Equivalent in Photon fields and improve the quality of measurement. This project is a part of regional research cooperative framework amongst IMS laboratories where harmonization of ionizing radiation metrological standard and chain of traceability to primary standard are conducted through inter-laboratory comparison exercise. These will enhance capability of all participated economies to meet international standard and will improve the quality assurace system for supporting ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation system.

Planned activities: The activity for this part will be a meeting to summarise the inter-comparison programme and revision of the regional framework, strategic and action plan to achieve sustainable development of the regional network.
