A guideline document for enhancing the emergency monitoring capabilities has been developed
"Guideline for Radioactivity Measurements in the Environment and Individual Dose Assessment Following a Nuclear or Radiological Emergency" was developed and distributed to the relevant stakeholders.
This document was developed as part of activities under the aprtnership project between the RCA Regional Office (RCARO) and the ASEAN Network of Regulatory Bodies on Atomic Energy (ASEANTOM), with the aim to improve the emergency monitoring capabilities of the ASEANTOM member countries following a nuclear or radiological emergency by facilitating the development of detailed standard operating procedures regarding radioactivity measurements of individuals and the environment. The guideline makes recommendations regarding the emergency monitoring processess, including the monitoring of the environment and individuals, used to respond to the emergencies, to thereby mitigate and minimize the consequences of such emergencies and protect emergency workers, the public and the environment against harmful effects of ionizing radiation in emergency exposure situations.
