Health Physics Questions and Answers - Question 392
Question 392: What monitoring period should be used in annual individual monitoring reports submitted, in accordance with 10 CFR 20.2206, following the first year of revised 10 CFR Part 20 implementation, if the period of implementation did not encompass the full year? For example, if a licensee implements the revised 10 CFR Part 20 on July 1, 1993, is the licensee required to provide annual individual monitoring reports early in 1994 that cover the entire year, or only for the final six months of the year during which monitoring was provided to individuals under 10 CFR 20.1502?
Answer: This annual report should cover the entire year, preferably using the format of Regulatory Guide 8.7, Rev. 1 (Form 5) for the entire year. However, if it is impractical to use this format for the portion of the year under 10 CFR 20.1-20.601, the format previously used for reports in compliance with 10 CFR 20.403 ("termination reports") may be used for that portion of the year.
