This International Standard addresses the - purposes of monitoring and of monitoring programmes; - description of the different categories of monitoring programmes; - quantitative criteria for conducting monitoring programmes; - suitable methods for monitoring and criteria for their selection; - information that has to be collected for the design of a monitoring programme; - general requirements for monitoring programmes (e.g. detection limits, tolerated uncertainties); - frequencies of measurements; - special cases; - quality assurance; and - documentation, reporting, record-keeping. This International Standard does not address - the monitoring of exposure to radon and its radioactive decay products; - detailed descriptions of measuring methods and techniques; - detailed procedures for in vivo measurements and in vitro analyses; - interpretation of monitoring results in terms of doses; - biokinetic data and mathematical models for converting measured activities into absorbed dose, equivalent dose and effective dose; or - the investigation of the causes or implications of an exposure or intake.
