Last update : April 24, 2019 Contact: Papadomarkaki Eleni, (email@example.com)National competent authoritiesNational competent authorities: The Greek Atomic Energy Commission (EEAE) is the national competent authority for the control, regulation and supervision in the fields of nuclear energy, nuclear technology, radiological and nuclear safety and radiation protection. EEAE is supervised by the Greek Minister of Education, Research and Religious Affairs. https://www.eeae.gr/ National legislative frameworkMain texts of the national regulation: Presidential Decree 101/2018 (194/A/20.11.2018), Adaptation of Greek legislation to Council Directive 2013/59 / Euratom of December 5, 2013 laying down basic safety standards for protection against the dangers arising from exposure to ionising radiation, and repealing Directives 89/618 / Euratom 90/641 / Euratom, 96/29 / Euratom, 97/43 / Euratom and 2003/122 /(EE L13 / 17.1.2014) - Establishment of radiation protection regulations Law 4310/2014 (258/Α/08.12.2014), Research, Technological Development and Innovation and other provisions (especially Chapter Ε' - Nuclear Energy, Technology and Radiation Protection − Greek Atomic Energy Commission (ΕΕΑΕ), articles 39 - 46 & article 90) Law 1733/1987, Art.29 "Technology transfer, inventions, technological innovation and the establishment of the Atomic Energy Commission" Provisions more stringent than the Directive EURATOM: No National reportNational report description: EEAE’s Annual report of the year 2017: It includes all activities in EEAE. Pages 26 to 29 are referred to external dosimetry. Annual reports from 2008 to 2017 are available to the link: https://eeae.gr/en/eeae/annual-reports Also a statistical analysis of the data of the Greek National dose Registry for external dosimetry appears to the link http://eeae.gr/en/radiation-protection/personal-dosimetry/external-dosim... National Report File: EEAE_Annual Report 2017_EN.pdf National dose registerNational body responsible of national statistics: EEAE has developed and operates an integrated central information system, the National Radiation Protection Database. It contains information on the institutions and laboratories using ionising radiation, their equipment (including the inventory of the radioactive sources) and the personnel. Types of recorded data: Passive dosimetryInternal dosimetry: commited doses onlyAircrew external dosimetryNotional dosesData sender to the register: All dosimetry servicesEmployerOther:Airline companies Doses received in another country: YesDirect access to the register data: EmployerOther access to the register data: RPE/RPO Radiation passbookWorkers with radiation passbook: Only specific group of workersEach worker of category A who practices all activities in controlled area, or is occupied temporarily or permanently to an outside undertaking Radiation passbook centralisation: YesEEAE Approved dosimetry servicesApproval of dosimetry services: EEAE is the competent authority to coordinate the individual dose monitoring of workers who occupationally work with ionizing radiation. Such monitoring shall be conducted by EEAE's Perosnal Dosimetry Department or by suitable laboratories of other bodies which have been approved by EEAE. Such approval criteria for laboratories shall be determined by EEAE as the case may be. Approved dosimetry services: Personal Dosimetry Department of EEAE Individual monitoring services: There is one institution (EEAE) for all category of exposures (external, internal, exposure to radon) Intercomparison measurement programs: No External exposureReference dosimetry: Passive dosimetryCategory B workers: YesPositioning of the dosemeter: Above the lead apronPassive dosimetry - Radiation background: When the workers use radioprotective aprons then double dosimetry is reccommended.

Airline companies must be equipped with appropriate computer softwares, approved by EEAE, for the calculation of the doses received by the aircrew personnel. Internal exposure monitoringIn vivo measurements: EEAE is equipped with a whole body counter of shadow type and HpGe detector as well as with a thyroid uptake for the in vivo measurements to estimate the internal exposure. Radiotoxicological analysis: Urine measurements are performed in EEAE's Department of Environmental Radioactivity. Internal commited dose assessment: The Head of EEAE's Department of Environmental Radioactivity is responsible for the assessment of the internal committed dose. Recording level for internal commited dose: 0.1 mSv, depending on radionuclide and exposure situations. Radon exposureMonitoring radon exposure: Track etch detectors electret and active systems (alphaguard) are used to estimate the radon concentration in special workplaces.
