Health Physics Questions and Answers - Question 216

Question 216: Will Regulatory Guide 10.8 be revised to include guidance on monitoring external dose (and demonstrating compliance with the annual occupational dose limits) for health personnel working in several hospitals simultaneously? [Note: This is a common practice for physicians in Hawaii and there is no good mechanism for licensees to track where the physicians work outside the facility]

Answer: Appendix X to Regulatory Guide 10.8, Rev.2, was developed to provide guidance on how to implement revised Part 20 at a medical facility. This guide will be revised in its entirety in the future to address the changes in 10 CFR Part 20.

(Reference: 10 CFR 20.1502)
