Radiological protection - Monitoring and dosimetry for internal exposures due to wound contamination with radionuclides (ISO 20031:2020)

General information

60.55     Jul 24, 2022




European Standard



This document specifies the requirements for personal contamination monitoring and dose assessment following wounds involving radioactive materials. It includes requirements for the direct monitoring at the wound site, monitoring of uptake of radionuclides into the body and assessment of local and systemic doses following the wound event.
It does not address:
— details of monitoring and assessment methods for specific radionuclides;
— monitoring and dose assessment for materials in contact with intact skin or pre-existing wounds, including hot particles;
— therapeutic protocols. However, the responsible entity needs to address the requirements for decontamination and decorporation treatments if appropriate.
