While the JOYO MK-III Project, after the modification of primary coolant system started in oct.2000 and the integrated function tests, from Jun.2003, the performance test was executed for the purpose of verification of designed performance and confirmation of basic characteristics as an irradiation reactor. While the JOYO MK-III performance test, 28 tests were executed. Radiation control section took charge of 3 of them, "Dose Rate Distribution", "Radiation Control" and "Gaseous Waste Radioactive Concentration Measurement". The performance tests in charge of radiation control section was started on Jun.27, 2003, that is before the start-up of reactor, and were carried out when the thermal output of reactor was 40MWt, 70MWt, 105MWt and effective full power, 140MWt. The pre-operation tests in charge of radiation control section are "Test of dose rate measurement in operation and after shutdown". "Test of radioactive concentration measurement of air", and "Test of gaseous waste processing performance". The final test was "Test of dose rate measurement after shutdown", which was executed on Nov.27 2003. JOYO passed the inspection and the performance test was finished. The representative results in these performance tests are; 1.Every result is under the criterion 2.Dose rate and monitoring data are totally less than the data in MK-II operation. Though it confirmed that all the data are under the criterion, it is considered that these tests should be performed at proper intervals because the circumstances may change.
