NCRP Report No. 179 Now Available

NCRP is proud to announce the publication of Report No. 179, Guidance for Emergency Response Dosimetry as a tool for the emergency planning and response community


Report 179 bridges the dosimetry gaps between trained and equipped radiation workers and all other categories of responders who are considered emergency workers during a radiation response.

The document focuses on answering the following questions:

  1. With minimal dosimetry resources, how do responders make decisions to control the total dose and associated risk?
  2. How are doses assigned to responders when not every responder is issued a dosimeter before exposure occurs?
  3. What is the regulatory framework for responders who are not trained as radiation workers?

This report provides tools that help emergency managers and planners optimize and re-purpose existing radiation equipment for tracking personnel doses and performing dose reconstruction.
