Environmental Science & Research - Foodexportcertification

By: Environmental Science & Research  06-Dec-2011
Keywords: Environmental Radioactivity

The NRL offers a service to authenticate levels of radioactivity in foodstuffs for the export market.

Certificates are issued for goods that are of 100% New Zealand origin without testing a sample for radioactivity content.  These certificates are issued on the basis of experience as well as ongoing environmental radioactivity monitoring operations.  For any goods containing imported components a sample must be tested for radioactivity content before a certificate can be issued.

For further information contact the NRL's Environmental Laboratory.

Environmental Science & Research - AnalyticalServices

The Environmental laboratory maintains a fully equipped radiochemical laboratory essential for the analysis of radionuclides emitting alpha and beta radiations, such as thorium isotopes and some fission products, and for the processing of all samples for analysis.


Environmental Science & Research - Calibrations

Absorbed dose to water calibrations suitable for use with the absorbed dose to water dosimetry protocol TRS398 can be provided for NE2571 chambers. The NRL offers radiation measuring instrument calibration services to a range of customers involved in industry, medicine, and research. The NRL maintains x-ray plants that are representative of the x-ray plants used for general radiography, fluoroscopy, and mammography.


Environmental Science & Research - PersonalDosimetryService

Situations in which the use of the film + blue holder dosemeter is of benefit include all situations the film + yellow holder dosemeter is of benefit. The NRL’s Personal Dosimetry Service is available to measure occupational dose to those exposed to ionising radiation in the course of their work. The film gives a permanent re-examinable record of both quantitative and qualitative aspects of the radiation dose received by the wearer.
