Radiation Protection Register

The Radiation Protection Register is a central dose register for the surveillance of occupational radiation exposure. It has the task to control continuously the keeping of the body dose limits of all occupationally exposed persons in Germany and the issuing of radiation passbooks for itinerant workers. The Radiation Protection Register contributes to the international development of the occupational radiation protection as to the state of science and technology and to the harmonization of the occupational radiation protection monitoring in Europe.

Statistical evaluations from the Radiation Protection Register

In Germany in 2016 about 440,000 people have been classified as occupationally exposed to radiation. Among these, 366,000 workers were monitored with official dosimeters. About 43,000 individuals were part of air craft crews and thus exposed to increased cosmic radiation.
