Last update : July 7, 2015 National competent authoritiesNational competent authorities: Greek Atomic Energy Commission http://www.eeae.gr/ National legislative frameworkMain texts of the national regulation: Law 1733/1987, Art.29 "Technology transfer, inventions, technological innovation and the establishment of the Atomic Energy Commission" Ministerial Order No 1014 FOR 94 (compliance with the Directives 96/29 and 97/43/ EURATOM) Ministerial Order No 9087 FOR 1004 (compliance with Directive 90/641 EURATOM on the operational protection of the outside workers) Provisions more stringent than the Directive EURATOM: No National dose registerNational body responsible of national statistics: GAEC 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: YesGAEC Approved dosimetry servicesApproval of dosimetry services: GAEC is the competent authority to coordinate the individual dose monitoring of workers who occupationally work with ionizing radiation. Such monitoring shall be conducted by GAEC's Perosnal Dosimetry Department or by suitable laboratories of other bodies which have been approved by GAEC. Such approval criteria for laboratories shall be determined by GAEC as the case may be. Approved dosimetry services: Perosnal Dosimetry Department of GAEC Individual monitoring services: There is one institution (GAEC) 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 reccomended.

Airline companies must be equipped with appropriate computer softwares, approved by GAEC, for the calulation of the doses received by the aircrew personnel. Internal exposure monitoringIn vivo measurements: GAEC 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 GAEC's Department of Environmental Radioactivity. Internal commited dose assessment: The Head of GAEC's Department of Environmental Radioactivity is responsible for the assessment of the internal commited 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.
