Objectives

The wider objective of project B3.01/06 "Transfer of European Regulatory Methodology and Practices to the Nuclear Safety Authorities of Belarus - Regulatory Assistance and Technical Support in the Field of Radiation Protection and Emergency Preparedness (BE/RA/04)" is to continue the support and strengthening of the national nuclear safety and radiation protection regulatory system in Belarus.

The Project Specifications consist of the following three lots:

Lot 1: Calibration bench for gamma radiation dosimeters: infrastructure to allow verification, calibration, graduation and metrological testing of dosimetric instruments in a collimated beam of gamma radiation with differing intensity in dependence on source term and distance to source. Including radioactive sources for calibration of gamma radiation dosimeters. Radioactive sources (Cs-137) with the total activity up to 24.1∙TBq (651 Ci). (Contract 214-303)
Lot 2: Radiation measurement techniques and devices: radiation measurement devices for qualitative and quantitative detection of alpha-, beta-, gamma- and neutron radiation. Device for identification, localisation and analysis of radiation sources. Dosimetric devices for dose assessment. (Contract 214-310)
Lot 3: Container-type decontamination unit: transportable decontamination unit with pre-decontamination in tent structure and final decontamination in different sections, housed in a standard 20 feet container (Contract 132-896)
