The Ministry of Health of Ukraine Accreditation

The RPI has a many year’s experience in the development of safety standards. The RPI is accredited by the Ministry of Health of Ukraine (MoHU) for the development of safety criteria and standards for dangerous materials. Specifically, the RPI is authorized to develop:

  • Industrial and occupational radiation hygiene legislation and regulation of all types (in accordance with requirements of para 4.2 NRBU-97), as well as dose limits, permissible and control levels, reference and intervention levels, dose and risk constraints, safety criteria for management of radioactive material and waste;
  • Industrial and occupational hygiene standards, regulation, and requirements for specific types of nuclear facilities, including uranium facilities;
  • Harmonization of national requirements with the international recommendations and requirements (ICRP, IAEA, Euratom, etc.);
  • Practical policies and guidance documents on: models and assessment procedures for the estimation of reference doses (including the collective dose) from internal and external exposures; interpretation of the monitoring data on radiological characteristics of the environmental media, industrial zones, radionuclides content in foodstuffs and human body (biophysical methods); evaluation procedures for indirect radiological assessment data, including the electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) methods for the tooth enamel spectrometry, fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH) molecular cytogenetic techniques, etc.;
  • Methods for establishing the regulatory requirements and quantitative safety criteria, in accordance with the requirements of Section 7 and 9.4 Basic Sanitary Rules for Radiation Safety of Ukraine (OSPU‑2005), for:
    • permissible, control levels and reference levels;
    • radioactive discharges for the nuclear facilities (including uranium facilities);
    • occupational radiation protection;
    • permissible levels for the intake of radionuclides;
    • permissible activity concentrations in the environmental media, at workplaces, in the air of industrial zones, in foodstuffs, etc.;
    • health hazard assessments and dosimetric calculations at various stages of planning and design of activities and facilities;
    • procedure of occupational hygiene surveillance and certification of working areas and workplaces.
