Laboratory Clearance Surveys

The Environment Agency require the demonstration of complete absence of residual surface contamination, before allowing the closure of licences for unsealed radioactive substances.

Following preparation of a comprehensive method statement and risk assessment, Radman Associates will conduct an independent survey of decommissioned radiochemical laboratories, with decontamination and validation monitoring, where required.

A final clearance report is subsequently provided with a statement of acceptable clearance or making recommendations for further removal..

Laboratory clearance surveys include active monitoring of all potentially contaminated areas including:

  • Floor, wall and bench surfaces
  • Fume-cupboards and sinks
  • Roof-space ducting
  • Drainage plumbing
  • All available instrumentation

With 25 years experience in the pharmaceutical research, biotechnology and nuclear sectors, Radman Associates are highly qualified to assist in managing your decommissioning and waste disposal.
