April 3rd, 2011- NRC PMT – Surface radioactivity screening levels

Attached is a pdf of screening values for release of materials with surface contamination from the draft ANSI/HPS N13.12 Surface and Volume Radioactivity Standards for Clearance.

The radioactivity concentration (screening value) for Cs-137 and Sr-90 is 1 Bq-cm2, which equates to a dose of 1 mrem/yr TEDE.

Accordingly, a 4 Bq-cm2 contamination level on cargo would be about 4 mrem/yr TEDE.

If transuranics were detected on cargo surfaces, the screening value is decreased to 0.1 Bq-cm2, which equates to a dose of 40 mrem/yr TEDE for a 4 Bq-cm2 contamination level.
