Interlaboratory comparison on 137Cs activity concentration in fume dust

Abstract : A comparison was conducted, between 11 European National Metrology Institutes and EC-JRC, on measurement of Cs-137 activity concentration in fume dust. As test material an activity standard produced from real contaminated fume dust was used. The standard material consisted of 13 cylindrical samples of compressed fume dust. The material contained Cs-137 and Co-60 of reference activity concentrations of (9.72 +/- 0.10) Bq/g and (0.450 +/- 0.018) Bq/g, respectively, for the reference date of 1 June 2013, determined using the comparison results. The organization and results of the intercomparison, as well as the process of obtaining reliable reference values are presented.
