Preliminary remark:
Detailed information is given in the Memorandum for the type approval of radiation protection dosemeters.

Dosemeter types and quantities:

Types of area and individual dosemeters for photon radiation, which are to be verified, must have been type-tested by PTB. Department 6.3 carries out tests only with regard to the current quantities in radiation protection.
