    Abstract

    To assist towards the harmonisation within the EC countries, the Eastern European countries and the USA, of the measurement of environmental dose rates from photon radiation an EC sponsored intercomparison of environmental dose rate meters, electronic dosemeters and TL dosemeters was performed during 1994. The intercomparison was organised by the Physikalisch Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB), Braunschweig, Germany, and by the Riso National Laboratory, Roskilde, Denmark. This paper describes the intercomparison experiments performed at the newly established Riso Natural Environmental Radiation Measurement Stations during the period 12 to 18 June 1994. The chief aims of the experiments were to allow the participants to check their home calibrations of their detectors and to intercompare the dosemeter responses of the individual environmental radiation measurement systems used in the USA, Eastern Europe and the CEC countries and make a link between the different reference standards used.
