September 16, 2003

NRC Information Notice 2003-12: Problems Involved in Monitoring Dose to the Hands Resulting from the Handling of Radiopharmaceuticals The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is issuing this information notice (IN) to alert licensees of potential difficulties that may be encountered when monitoring doses to the hands of workers involved in handling radiopharmaceuticals. This IN describes some of these difficulties, the work that is being conducted to resolve them, and interim guidance that NRC will adopt pending completion of this work. It is expected that recipients will review the information for applicability to their facilities and consider actions, as appropriate, to avoid similar problems. However, suggestions contained in the IN are not NRC requirements; therefore, no specific action nor written response is required.
