Abstract An etched-track system for the production and processing of a large number of radon detectors each year is described. The operation of the detector is outlined along with procedures for quality control, issue and receipt of detectors, chemical etching, track counting, blind testing, record keeping and processing of results. The detectors are used for the assessment of population exposure, for epidemiologic studies, and in workplaces and dwellings to determine levels of radon.
