Subject: RIS to licensees on radioisotopes that are detected from the Japanese event


NRR has been directed to develop a RIS to the licensees regarding radioisotopes detected by the REMP program that are from the Japanese event. This RIS will request that the licensees voluntarily submit their results to the Operations Center at hoo.hov•,nrc.pov. In parallel, NEI will also be requesting the information from the licensees.

This is the information we are requesting:

When reporting information, the following should be provided as applicable:
1 Sample date(s) and time
2 Approximate locations(s)
3 Environmental sample medium (eg, air particulate filter, air charcoal, milk,
sediment, vegetation, rainwater, groundwater, etc…)
4 Type of analysis (eg, gross beta, iodine-131, tritium, etc…)
5 Analysis result(s) (in units typically used in the environmental monitoring
program and include applicable detection sensitivity)
If you have any questions, please let me know.
