Title Occupational radiation protection: Final Rule [USA]
Bibliographic information 4 Nov. 1998, Vol.63, No.213, p.59662-59689.
Abstract The US Department of Energy (DOE) is amending its primary standards for occupational radiation protection. It is doing so because it is changing from a system of contractually-based nuclear safety standards to regulatory-based requirements. This Final Rule codifies requirements in the existing contractually-based standards, clarifies certain issues identified during the implementation of programmes to ensure compliance with the original rule and corrects minor errors.
