This Standard addresses the design and operation of EMPs for Class I nuclear facilities and uranium mines and mills. These facilities include

(a) nuclear reactors;

(b) uranium mines, mills, refineries, and conversion plants;

(c) uranium fuel fabrication plants;

(d) isotope-processing facilities;

(e) particle accelerators; and

(f) waste-management facilities.

Parts of this Standard could also be relevant to the design and operation of EMPs for

(a) Class II nuclear facilities;

(b) institutions operating under the authority of a nuclear substances and radiation devices licence; and

(c) facilities that use or store naturally occurring radioactive materials.

However, in these situations, the operator of the facility or institution is responsible for determining the applicability and suitability of the guidance.

The monitoring described in this Standard could also be applicable to low-level emissions of nuclear and hazardous substances released to the environment due to existing exposure situations such as those resulting from the contamination of areas with radioactive materials produced or used in past activities. However, in these cases, the operator of the facility is responsible for determining the applicability of the guidance.
