For some brachytherapy sources, vendors assign large uncertainties to their stated calibration values, in some cases up to ±10%.

End-user calibration of brachytherapy sources is necessary, not only to check vendor stated calibration but to ensure traceability to internationally accepted standards. Report No. is one in a series of reports concerned with operational radiation protection issues.

It was formulated in recognition of the fact that implementation of recommendations for the protection of workers and the public, as well as demonstration of compliance with the requirements of regulatory agencies, requires instrumentation and techniques for the measurement and evacuation of.
