Question 378: If a worker formerly monitored at the
licensee's facility as a "declared pregnant woman,"
requests that her exposure records be forwarded to her
current employer, should related embryo / fetus dose records
also be forwarded if not specifically requested?
Answer: No. Regulatory Guide 8.7, Rev. 1, includes the
following statement in Section 3.2. "Licensees should be
sensitive to the issue of personal privacy with regard to
embryo / fetus dose. If requested by a monitored woman, a
letter report may be provided to document prior
embryo / fetus dose." Otherwise, the embryo / fetus dose
records should not be provided. (Reference: 10 CFR 19.13,
10 CFR 20.1208).
