AERB e-LORA GUIDELINEAERB The AERB (Atomic Energy Regulatory Board) was constituted on November 15, 1983, by the President of India by exercising the powers conferred by the Atomic Energy Act, 1962 to carry out certain regulatory and safety functions under the Act. The regulatory authority of AERB is derived from the rules and notifications promulgated under the Atomic Energy Act and the Environment (Protection) Act, 1986. eLORA The eLORA system is designed to automate the comprehensive business processes of radiological application regulations targeted to large number of facilities involved in use of ionising radiation as well as radiation workers working with them for safe service.

LAYOUT AND SHIELDING GUIDELINEX-ray equipment must be installed in adequately shielded rooms to ensure that public in the vicinity of the x-ray installations are not unduly exposed to x-ray radiation. The adequacy of shielding depends on the material and thickness used for this purpose.

PMS GUIDELINETLD Badge Radiation Monitoring As per Radiation Protection Rules – 2004, all occupational radiation workers need to be monitored to safe guard them from the deleterious somatic and genetic effects of ionizing radiations. This radiation monitoring is done with TLD Badges. A badge consists of 3 TLD discs. 2 types of TLD badges are available one to measure whole body dose of radiation and the other to measure the dose in the wrist. The TLD cards are read by TLD reader which is controlled by PC and a software. The software displays the dose received by the TLD Badge in a given period. The radiation received by the person is monitored with these TLD badges. These TLD badges are to be sent for radiation monitoring once in a month / 3 months and the user gets the replacement TLD badges before the due date for sending to lab for reading. The radiation is monitored continuously and the personnel doses should not exceed 100 mSv in a 5 year block (current year and previous 4 years). And in any one year maximum allowable dose is 30 mSv. If the radiation worker uses lead apron then the TLD Badge to be worn inside the lead apron. These TLD badges are not transferable, one should not use other person’s badge.
