Health Physics Questions and Answers - Question 191
Question 191: Is a licensee required to provide dosimeters to an individual during a planned special exposure (PSE) that would only be worn during the PSE?
Answer: No, there is no requirement, but the licensee may do so. 10 CFR 20.1206 requires that the doses received during a PSE be accounted for separately from the doses received under the limits of 20.1201, and the use of separate dosimeters that are worn only during the PSE is a practical means to account for the PSE dose.
