The cooperation agreement no. 1 (ZAV Nr. 1) between HZDR and VKTA covers the structure and responsibility of all measures to guarantee radiation protection at the Rossendorf campus (FSR). Besides the duties based on the Radiation Protection Directive no. 1 (SSA 1) and to be pulled by the Radiation Protection Officers (SSB) in their radiation protection areas selected central functions are fulfilled by some special departments for the whole research center coordinated and monitored by the Radiation Protection Commissioner (SSBV) on behalf of the Radiation Protection Supervisor (SSV) of HZDR.
Detailled information about organization of radiation protection at FSR you can find here.
The Department Radiation Protection and Safety (FKTS) is responsible for the following central radiation protection functions:
The staff of FKTS supports the Radiation Protection Officers in the context of operative radiation protection at the following tasks:
The radiation exposure on the Rossendorf campus due to the emissions of radioactive particles in the exhaust air of the research facilities contributes to artificial radioactivity. This radiation exposure averages 0.001 mSv/a in the surroundings of the campus. This value thus falls widely below the legally allowed limit of 0.3 mSv/a.
There is a term for people who - due to their job - deal with ionizing radiation: they are called "occupationally exposed to radiation". At HZDR, the radiation exposure of these people is permanently kept under surveillance.
