Occupational Radiation Exposure at NRC Licensed Facilities
In 1992, the OECD/NEA, with sponsorship from
the IAEA, created the Information System on
Occupational Exposure (ISOE) Program as
an international forum for representatives from
nuclear electric utilities and regulatory agencies
to share dose reduction information, operational
experience, and information to improve the
optimization of radiological protection at
commercial nuclear power plants. The ISOE
database, ISOEDAT, includes occupational
exposure information for 401 operating units
and 81 units in cold-shutdown or some stage
of decommissioning in 29 countries, covering
about 91% of the world's operating commercial
nuclear power reactors. One of the purposes of
ISOEDAT is to allow for comparison of radiation
protection effectiveness and trends among the
participating countries and among the various
types of commercial nuclear power reactors.
As part of the agency's international cooperative
research program initiatives, NRC joined the ISOE
Program as a regulatory member in December
1994. NRC's REIRS database is the U.S.
system comparable to ISOEDAT on the global
scale. Since joining the ISOE Program, NRC
has leveraged experience in data management
and analysis of the REIRS database, as well
as provided input to OECD/NEA and IAEA for
streamlining certain elements of how ISOEDAT
captures, maintains, and displays data.
Table 4.9 lists the average number of operating
PWRs and BWRs included in ISOEDAT during the
Average Number of Units Reported to ISOE by Country from 1994 - 2010*
Republic of Korea
Republic of South Africa
The average number of units reported to ISOE by country from 1994 - 2010 was determined by
counting the number of BWRs and PWRs that had collective dose recorded in ISOEDAT for each
country and dividing this total by the number of years reported.
