Abstract The 12th in a series of annual reports. Of 31 cases of suspected over-exposure to radiation investigated in 1982, 25 were associated with industrial radiography, 4 with research, education, or health institutions, and 2 with major nuclear organisations. 19 of the dose estimates made from chromosome examinations were in the range 0-0.09Gy, 6 exceeded 0.09Gy, and no biological assessment of dose was possible in 6 cases. The dose estimate for the case with the highest confirmed over-exposure was 0.17Gy. The chromosome data are compared with information obtained from physical dosimetry, and a brief summary of each case is appended.
