Mobile radionuclide gauges
There are several different kinds of mobile measuring equipment that utilise ionising radiation in the form of x-rays or gamma, neutron, alpha or beta radiation. Generally speaking, the radioactive sources used in this equipment are medium and low activity sealed sources, and the procurement, use and handling is required to be formally notified to NRPA in accordance with radiation protection regulations.
Personal dosimetry service at the Norwegian Radiation Protection Authority
The Norwegian Radiation Protection Authority (NRPA) has its own personal dosimetry laboratory and offers different kinds of personal dosimetry services.
Radioactive sealed sources used in industry
The installation and use of industrial sources normally requires only that NRPA is formally notified of the planned activity. If, however, the activity of the radioactive source exceeds a certain value, then the enterprise that will be utilising the source must be approved.
