Final Status Survey Course


Course Title:

Final Status Survey

Course duration:

2 days

Price:

$795

Course Summary:

Whether in preparation for license termination, license amendment, or building renovation, licensees must demonstrate that facilities formerly used for work with radioisotopes are suitable for unrestricted use by members of the public. This is best accomplished by conducting a historical site assessment, scoping surveys (as necessary), and a final status survey consistent with the methodology described in the Multi-Agency Radiation Site and Survey Implementation Manual (MARSSIM).

Description

Whether in preparation for license termination, license amendment, or building renovation, licensees must demonstrate that facilities formerly used for work with radioisotopes are suitable for unrestricted use by members of the public. This is best accomplished by conducting a historical site assessment, scoping surveys (as necessary), and a final status survey consistent with the methodology described in the Multi-Agency Radiation Site and Survey Implementation Manual (MARSSIM). This two-day course provides students with an understanding of the process and the necessary steps that result in the documentation needed to obtain the regulatory approval sought by the licensee.

Topics include the decommissioning process, review of pertinent regulations, the MARSSIM approach to surveys, establishment of derived concentration guideline levels, equipment used for final status surveys, reporting requirements, and a discussion of lessons learned. The course focuses primarily on decommissioning surveys for biomedical research facilities, but the concepts are applicable to other types of radioactive material licensees.

The course will provide radiation safety officers, environmental safety and health managers, and other persons responsible for radiation safety with an understanding of the decommissioning process. Specifically, those planning to release facilities from the requirements of a materials license will be better able to plan, budget, and schedule activities related to future projects.
