Answer: Yes. However, it should be recognized that this report should include records of doses received during planned special exposures, accidents, and emergency conditions as shown in the records maintained in accordance with 10 CFR 20.2106. If there have been no planned special exposures or overexposures, a statement to that effect should be provided.
