Question 86: Does the term "per unit intake" in Footnote 1

to §20.1202 refer to one event or to the entire monitoring


Answer: The term "per unit intake" does not refer to any

particular time period. However, §20.1202, to which

Footnote 1 refers, provides a comparison to an annual

limit. Thus, the time period of concern in this footnote

is the "year" as defined in 10 CFR 20.1003. (Reference:

10 CFR 20.1202 Footnote 1)
