The Institute of Atomic Energy (IAE) Branch offers radiation monitoring services to all organizations whose activities are related to radioactive substances and ionizing radiation sources (IRS).

Radiation monitoring activity by the IAE in third-party organizations is licensed by the Committee of Atomic and Energy Supervision and Control of the Ministry of Energy of the Republic of Kazakhstan (License of CAESC ME RK “Provision of Services in the Field of Atomic Energy Use” No.20004749 dated 12.03.2020). Type(s) of the licensed activity:

  • Determination of a radionuclide content in products, materials, environmental objects, measurement of radon concentration and other radioactive gases;
  • Measurement of radon concentration and other radioactive gases;
  • Determination of a radionuclide content in products, materials, environmental objects;
  • Individual dosimetry monitoring of a personnel;
  • Radiation monitoring of territories, premises, workplaces, goods, materials, scrap metal, vehicles.

The IAE’s Radiation Safety Service has modern certified (with valid certificates and certifications of suitability and calibration) mobile equipment that allows it to perform the necessary radiation measurements depending on a nature of work and an IRS type.

The Radiation Safety Service implements:

  • Radiation monitoring of territories, premises, workplaces, goods, materials, scrap metal and vehicles;
  • Field trip and field search, initial assessment of radiation hazard, etc.;
  • Dose rate measurement of ionizing radiation at workplaces of a personnel;
  • Measurement of an ionizing radiation intensity in premises and surroundings;
  • Confirmation and measurement of radioactive contamination levels at working surfaces and equipment, on personal/collective protective means and workers’ skin;
  • Measurement of radon in the air with determining the monitoring levels and statistical data gathering.
