§ 835.701 General provisions.
§ 835.702 Individual monitoring records.
(a) Records shall be maintained to document doses received
by all individuals for whom monitoring was required pursuant
to § 835.402 and doses received during planned special exposures,
accidents, and emergency conditions.
(b) The results of individual external and internal dose measurements
that are performed, but are not required by § 835.402, shall
be recorded. Recording of the non-uniform shallow dose equivalent
to the skin caused by contamination on the skin (see § 835.205)
is not required if the dose is less than 2 percent of the limit
specified for the skin in § 835.202(a)(4).
(c) The records required by this section shall:
(1) Be sufficient to evaluate compliance with § 835.202;
(2) Be sufficient to provide dose information necessary to
complete reports required by subpart I of this part and by Departmental
requirements for occurrence reporting and processing;
(3) Include the following quantities for external dose received
during the year:
(i) The effective dose equivalent from external sources of
radiation (deep dose equivalent may be used as effective dose
equivalent for external exposure);
(ii) The lens of the eye dose equivalent;
(iii) The shallow dose equivalent to the skin; and
(iv) The shallow dose equivalent to the extremities.
(4) Include the following quantities for internal dose resulting
from intakes received during the year:
(i) Committed effective dose equivalent;
(ii) Committed dose equivalent to any organ or tissue of concern;
(iii) Estimated intake and identity of radionuclides.
(5) Include the following quantities for the summation of
the external and internal dose:
(i) Total effective dose equivalent in a year;
(ii) For any organ or tissue assigned an internal dose during
the year, the sum of the deep dose equivalent from external
exposures and the committed dose equivalent to that organ or
(iii) Cumulative total effective dose equivalent received
from external and internal sources while employed at the site
or facility, since January 1, 1989.
(6) Include the dose equivalent to the embryo/fetus of a declared
(d) Documentation of all occupational exposure received during
the current year shall be obtained when demonstrating compliance
with § 835.202(a). In the absence of formal records of previous
occupational exposure during the year, a written estimate signed
by the individual may be accepted.
(e) Efforts shall be made to obtain records of prior years
occupational internal and external exposure.
(f) The records specified in this section that are identified
with a specific individual shall be readily available to that
(g) Data necessary to allow future verification or reassessment
of the recorded doses shall be recorded.
(h) All records required by this section shall be transferred
to the DOE upon cessation of activities at the site that could
cause exposure to individuals.
