THE REQUIREMENTS FOR INDIVIDUAL MONITORING OF OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE: INTERNATIONAL EXPERIENCE AND UKRAINIAN REALITIES

The article includes analysis and generalizations about international and national experience as well as regulatory requirements for the organization and performance of occupational monitoring for radiation exposure (category A personnel), filling of the national dose registries. It is shown that for practical reasons it is justifiable to provide universal individual monitoring of category A personnel, regardless of the expected dose of radiation. The establishment and functioning the national dose registry should not be limited to the mechanical collection and accumulation of data of non-guaranteed quality. Instead, both a quality management program and a scientific and methodological center should become components of the dose monitoring and registration system ensuring the quality and reliability of data on occupational exposure. Besides the dose records, the data sets should include information about methods used, work conditions, employees health status. Information exchange infrastructure and data protection policies should be built in accordance with national approaches under the auspices of the State Agency for E-Governance in Ukraine.
Key words: dose, occupational exposure, category A personnel, registry, quality control, data, ionizing radiation.
