The dose limit for the eye lens was lowered on April 1 2021, and a 3 mm dose equivalent was added to the calculation. The guidelines require that lens dosimeters be worn and managed when there is a risk of exceeding control standards. In this report, in order to examine future management methods, we investigated whether work that might exceed the equivalent dose limit was performed in the past. As a result of the investigation, the exposure dose for all works after fiscal year 2008 was sufficiently low compared to the equivalent dose limit. For this reason, it is considered that there is no need for additional management of wearing a personal dosimeter near the eyes for the work that is normally performed. In the future, as in the past, the basic management method will be to wear a dosimeter only on the basic part of the trunk under uniform exposure conditions, and to wear a dosimeter on the basic part of the trunk and the maximum dose part under nonuniform exposure conditions. When performing work with a high exposure dose to the eye lens, a dosimeter should be worn near the eye to measure the 3 mm dose equivalent.
