At JAEA MOX fuel facilities, a worker usually wears a protective lead apron; therefore, the dose to the lens of the eye (lens dose) outside the apron is higher than that to the torso. To estimate the potential impact on the current facility operation of the ICRP-proposed lens dose limit reduction from 150 mSv/y to average 20 mSv/y, the authors carried out an analysis on the past dose records for the workers over the last 18 years. Of a total of 4,312 workers' records analyzed, two workers' annual lens doses exceeded the lowered limit of 20 mSv (23.3 mSv and 20.7 mSv), although the maximum effective dose was below 10 mSv in each case. These compiled dose data reveal that in the glovebox and related operations the lens dose will be a limiting factor in radiological control under the newly lowered dose limit. To ensure that the number of workers with an annual lens dose greater than 15 mSv (approximately 0.6% of the workers) is kept to a minimum, the implementation of an administrative control level for the lens dose is considered.

To investigate the shielding effects of full-face respirator masks and the suitable positioning of lens dosemeters, irradiation experiments of $$^{90}$$Sr+$$^{90}$$Y beta particles were performed using an anthropomorphic head phantom into the eyes of which small thermoluminescence dosemeters (TLDs) were loaded, and the lens doses measured by these TLDs were compared with the doses measured by commercially available personal dosemeters attached around the eyes of the phantom. The three tested masks reduced the beta lens dose to 9-14% as compared to the lens doses in the absence of a mask. As for the suitable positioning of lens dosemeters, the $$H_{rm p}$$(0.07) evaluated by the $$H_{rm p}$$(0.07) dosemeter attached at the center of the forehead gave an over-response to the lens dose by a factor of 2.5-8.4 regardless of the presence of masks. The $$H_{rm p}$$(3) evaluated by the $$H_{rm p}$$(3) dosemeters, even though placed at extreme positions near the outside corners of the eyes, provided better lens dose estimates with a response of 0.38-1.7.

In Japan, the possibility to change the current dose limit of the lens of the eye for the radiation workers working in the planned exposure situation (normal controlled situations) to a new ICRP dose limit was discussed. It was further discussed how to appropriately monitor and manage the equivalent dose of the eye lenses for these workers exposed to radiation at their workplaces, such as nuclear and medical facilities. Among the workers exposed to a high-dose radiation at the water storage flange tank deconstructed $$^{90}$$Sr/$$^{90}$$Y dominant areas and the nuclear reactor buildings (high dose gamma-ray) of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant (1F-NPP), H$$_{p}$$(10), H$$_{p}$$(3), and H$$_{p}$$(0.07) at the head and the chest (or the upper arm) were estimated by passive personal dosimeters using thermoluminescence dosimeters (TLDs) and radio photoluminescence glass dosimeters (RPLGDs). The relationship between H$$_{p}$$(10), H$$_{p}$$(3), and H$$_{p}$$(0.07) along with the effects of the sites of wearing dosimeters on the head inside a full-face mask and the chest (or upper arm) were discussed.

We performed a field study of eye lens dosimetry for workers involved in the decommissioning operation at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. In this study, humanoid phantoms equipped with different personal dosemeters were placed at selected locations in the workplace. The experiment showed that $$H_{rm p}$$(3) at the head is about 20% higher than $$H_{rm p}$$(10) (or $$H_{rm p}$$(3)) at the trunk. This level of dose gradient is generally interpreted as being "almost uniform" in radiological control; therefore, tasks conducted in open areas with such relatively small dose gradients ($$sim$$1.2) will not require specific monitoring with eye lens dosemeters, except when the eye lens dose approaches the dose limit.

Estimation of cancer risk based on the organ-absorbed dose is underway for the Japanese Epidemiological Study on Low-Dose Radiation Effects (J-EPISODE). The reconstruction method for the organ-absorbed dose follows the approach adopted in the IARC 15-Country Collaborative Study, which examined the dosemeter response to photon exposure for the old film badge (FB) type, a multi-element FB and a thermoluminescence dosemeter. Until 2000, the dosemeters used in Japan were almost the same in the IARC study, so IARC study data could be used as they were. However, since 2000, the type of dosemeter has been replaced with active personal dosemeters (hereafter called electronic personal dosemeters), radio-photoluminescent glass dosemeters (Glass badge) and optically stimulated luminescence dosemeters (Luminess badge). Hence, it was necessary to collect these data again. A dosemeter response experiment was conducted using a device that irradiated an anthropomorphic phantom in the Japan Atomic Energy Agency calibration laboratories. The aim of the paper is to provide a conversion factor from reading in terms of $$H_{rm p}$$(10) to air kerma for realistic conditions for further conversion from air kerma to organ-absorbed dose. The obtained dosemeter responses for the dosemeter types currently used in Japan were consistent with those in the IARC study. These data will be utilized for J-EPISODE in reconstructing the organ-absorbed dose.

In 2011, the ICRP recommended reducing an occupational equivalent dose limit for the lens of the eye. Since then, there have been extensive discussions toward regulatory implementation of such new occupational dose limit. In Japan, the Radiation Council established a Subcommittee in July 2017 to discuss the feasibility of implementing the new occupational lens dose limit. In March 2018, the Radiation Council requested all relevant government ministries and agencies to take necessary actions toward implementation of the new occupational dose limit, considering a series of discussions made by the Subcommittee. According to the currently available information, the new occupational lens dose limit will be implemented into regulations in Japan, most likely in April 2021. Epidemiological and biological studies on radiation effects on the lens and studies on lens dose measurements have been conducted in Japan, some of which have been funded by the Japanese Nuclear Regulation Authority. This paper provides an overview of the recent discussions toward regulatory implementation and the current status of the studies related to radiation exposure of the lens and its effect in Japan.

The Japan Atomic Energy Agency used criticality accident alarm systems (CAAS) to monitor the occurrence of any accidental criticality at the Tokai Reprocessing Plant (TRP). A total of six plastic scintillator-based detector units, newly purchased or developed for the TRP, were tested by exposing them to pulsed radiation generated at TRACY, which is a pulse-type reactor that uses uranyl nitrate solution as fuel. All detector units tested responded properly to pulsed radiation that simulated an actual accidental criticality.

When a criticality accident occurs, a screening survey to triage high-dose radiation exposed persons is performed. We have established a rapid method for the screening survey by measuring the $$gamma$$ dose rate mainly from $$^{24}$$Na on the victims' body surface with a conventional NaI(Tl) scintillation survey meter. In this study, a water-filled slab phantom containing NaCl was irradiated with neutrons from a $$^{252}$$Cf neutron source. The radioactivity concentration of $$^{24}$$Na produced in the phantom was determined by means of both $$gamma$$-ray spectrometry and simulations using the Monte Carlo N-Particle Transport Code. The ambient dose equivalent rates at the phantom's outer surface were simulated by the MCNP, and also were directly measured with a NaI(Tl) scintillation survey meter. From the experiments and calculations, we obtained the results that 1 Gy (neutron absorbed dose) corresponded to 18-76 $$mu$$Sv h$$^{-1}$$ (ambient dose equivalent rate) at the surface of the victim's body, which can be easily distinguished from normal background levels. Therefore, this method allows us to rapidly screen high-dose radiation exposed victims.

Criticality accident neutron dosimetry is based on measurement of the personal dosemeter and the biological samples of a person exposed to the neutrons from an accidental criticality. The authors computed the response functions of the personal dosemeter (NCL-TLD badge) and hair (sulfur) activation per unit incident neutron fluence and established the response dataset compiled with the 140 neutron spectra to be likely encountered in a criticality accident.

2011年4月、国際放射線防護委員会(ICRP)は、組織反応に関する声明(ソウル声明)の中で、作業者の水晶体の等価線量限度を現在の年間150mSvから大きく引き下げ、5年間平均で年間20mSvかつ単一年度で50mSvを超えないことと勧告した。これにより、海外でも自国の法令へこの新しい水晶体等価線量限度の取り入れに関する様々な検討がなされている。今後わが国でもこの新しい線量限度の法令取り入れについての検討が実施されることが予想される。これまで、国内の水晶体線量の測定・評価の現状については、IVR(interventional radiology)に係る医療従事者及び患者についての報告などが出されているが、原子力施設の放射線業務従事者の実態をまとめたものは少ない。そこで本稿では、日本原子力研究開発機構(JAEA)核燃料サイクル工学研究所のプルトニウム・ウラン混合酸化物燃料製造技術開発施設及び再処理施設プルトニウム転換技術開発施設における水晶体の被ばく線量管理に係る測定の現状と課題を整理した結果を報告する。
