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