(2) are reasonable under the circumstances to evaluate:
(A) the magnitude and extent of radiation levels;
(B) concentrations or quantities of radioactive material; and
(C) the potential radiological hazards that could be present.
(b) The licensee or registrant shall ensure that instruments and equipment used for quantitative radiation measurements (e.g., dose rate and effluent monitoring) are calibrated at the frequency committed to in accordance with the requirements of Rules .0207 or .0317 of this Chapter for the radiation measured.
(c) All personnel dosimeters (except for direct and indirect reading pocket ionization chambers and those dosimeters used to measure the dose to the extremities) that require processing to determine the radiation dose and that are used by licensees or registrants to comply with Rule .1604 of this Section, with other applicable provisions of this Chapter, or with conditions specified in a license shall be processed and evaluated by a dosimetry processor:
(1) Holding current personnel dosimetry accreditation from the National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program (NVLAP) of the National Institute of Standards and Technology; and
(2) Approved in this accreditation process for the type of radiation or radiations included in the NVLAP program that most closely approximates the type of radiation or radiations for which the individual wearing the dosimeter is monitored.
(d) Exposure of a personnel monitoring device to deceptively indicate a dose delivered to an individual is prohibited.
