The IAEA’s Statute authorizes the Agency to establish safety standards to protect health and minimize danger to life and property. Safety standards are only effective, if they are properly applied in practice. Regulating nuclear and radiation safety is a national responsibility, and many Member States have decided to adopt the IAEA’s safety standards for use in their national regulations. For the Contracting Parties to the various international safety conventions, IAEA standards provide a consistent, reliable means of ensuring the effective fulfillment of obligations under the conventions. The standards are also applied by designers, manufacturers and operators around the world to enhance nuclear and radiation safety in power generation, medicine, industry, agriculture, research and education. The IAEA takes seriously the enduring challenge for users and regulators everywhere: that of ensuring a high level of safety in the use of nuclear materials and radiation sources around the world.

This report describes the background information, development and conclusions of an International Expert Appraisal (hereinafter referred to as ‘the IEA’) of the radiological protection of the population surrounding the Ezeiza Atomic Centre (CAE), located in Buenos Aires province, Argentina. The IEA was carried out by relevant organizations in the United Nations systems and competent non-governmental international professional organizations, following a request of the Government of Argentina. The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) organized the IEA in accordance with the functions established in Article III.A.6 of the IAEA Statute, namely to provide for the application of its international safety standards for radiation protection of the public and the environment.

A number of IAEA Member States are undertaking to strengthen their radiation protection and safety infrastructures in order to facilitate the adoption of the requirements established in the Sponsoring Organizations. In this connection, the IAEA has developed a technical cooperation programme (Model Project on Upgrading Radiation Protection Infrastructure) to improve radiation protection and safety infrastructures in 51 Member States, taking into account national profiles and needs of the individual participating countries. The present report deals with the elements of a regulatory infrastructure for radiation protection and safety and intends to facilitate the implementation of the Basic Safety Standards in practice.

The structure of this Code of Practice differs from that of TRS-277 and more closely resembles that of TRS-381 in that the practical recommendations and data for each radiation type have been placed in an individual section devoted to that radiation type. Each essentially forms a different Code of Practice and includes detailed procedures and worksheets. The Code is addressed to users provided with calibrations in terms of absorbed dose to water traceable to a Primary Standard Dosimetry Laboratory. This category of users is likely to become the large majority since most standard laboratories are prepared to, or are planning to, supply calibrations in terms of absorbed dose to water at the reference radiation qualities recommended in this Code of Practice. Users who are not yet provided with calibrations in terms of absorbed dose to water may still refer to the current air kerma based codes of practice, such as TRS-277 and TRS-381, or adopt the present document using a calibration factor in terms of absorbed dose to water derived from an air kerma calibration as described in the text.

Technologies that make use of radiation continue to spread around the world: millions of people are employed in radiation related occupations and hundreds of millions of people benefit from these applications. The use of intense radiation sources for purposes such as the sterilization of medical products requires special care in the design and operation of equipment to prevent radiation injury to workers or to the public. Experience has shown that such technology is generally safely used, but controls have on occasion been circumvented and serious radiological accidents have ensued.

For radiotherapy to be safe and effective a number of technical conditions have to be met to ensure that the radiation beam is appropriate for each individual patient and that the dosage received by the patient is as planned. While it is the function of the radiotherapist to decide the characteristics of the treatment, he may not have the technical background to ensure that the equipment is operated in such a way that the desired results are achieved. This responsibility belongs to the medical radiation physicist.
