(5) the holder of an authorization, intends to perform actions not subject to authorisation in blasting areas by workplace parties, that may require a classification of the individuals in the category B, he has the authority to request such a classification by presenting all the information necessary for assessing dose. The Authority grants this request, she administrative decision to determine that the planned activity must be carried out by persons of category B. The authority is however argued that
1 a classification in category A would be required, so she has the request noting that apply are the provisions for external workers be dismissed;
2. no classification as occupationally exposed person is required, so she has to determine this administrative decision.
(6) is for professionally exposed persons of category B exceeding Z 1 set values detected in paragraph 1, the holder of the authorization has to notify the competent authority immediately, to clarify the causes and, if possible, to put corrective measures.
(7) If no corrective measures can be used, the competent authority shall check the concerned dealing on its justification. This dealing despite potentially higher doses remains justified, only professionally exposed persons of category A may be involved."

64. (1) a sealed source containing a radionuclide whose radioactivity at the time of manufacture or, if this is not known, at the time of the first placing on the table corresponds to specified value 1 column 4 in Appendix 1 or higher, is considered highly radioactive sealed source. For radio-nuclides, for in Appendix 1 table 1 column 4 values listed are not, the corresponding activity value is one-hundredth of the A1 value in accordance with the regulations of the International Atomic Energy Agency for the safe transport of radioactive material (IAEA safety requirements no. TS-R-1, Edition 2009, section IV).
(2) for devices that contain multiple homogeneous sources, whose overall activity is decisive for the classification of the device as a highly radioactive source.
(3) a prerequisite for issuing a permit for the handling of highly radioactive sources by the competent approval authority is proven insurance or the template of a bank guarantee, which ensure the safe disposal of highly radioactive source in the event of insolvency of the holder of the authorization, through the grant seekers. This obligation shall not, if

This number is - as far as possible - to engrave on the radiation source or to inculcate in them. It is engraved on the protective container or inculcate. Reusable containers are used, the nature and activity of the source of the minimum information must exhibit. Each delivered radiation source and each delivered protective container a photography of the radiation source type and the type of protective container, on the even must the essential characteristics of an associated guard or protective equipment must be visible and necessary plans and drawings be connected. Furthermore, is to join a radiation source certificate to each delivered radiation source, the identification number, the type and activity of the radioactive substance, date, procedure and result of the leak test must emerge from the.
(5) the owner shall ensure that the corresponding certificate of radiation sources, as well as the photo documentation referred to in paragraph 4 are attached to each source.
(6) the holder of the permit has to conclude an agreement in principle for each high-activity source with the manufacturer or supplier to the later withdrawal of the radiation source. In justified individual cases, the authority may allow exceptions to this obligation.
(7) the holder of the authorization of highly radioactive sources has special procedures for handling to create rules about the regular maintenance, carried out regular checks and safe storage, especially for a mobile usage, have to contain. He has all those people he entrusted with the handling of highly radioactive sources, to undergo a comprehensive theoretical and practical instruction or to undergo further. The teachings must refer in particular to the content of the safety analysis, the failure analysis and emergency planning. The teachings are periodically and immediately after an event that had a higher radiation exposure risk or actual radiation exposure resulted to repeat. There are written records to lead, to be kept at least 7 years are about the extent and the duration of these teachings.
(8) without prejudice to the provisions of section 59, the holder of the authorization of highly radioactive sources has to keep records that contain the information provided for in annex 10. These records can be made to the standard registration form in accordance with annex 10.
(9) without prejudice to the provisions of § 54 para 2 lit. 3 are highly radioactive sources, the are in containers of type B in accordance with the European Agreement concerning the international carriage of dangerous goods by road (ADR - BGBl.

"The disposal of liquid and gaseous radioactive waste
74. (1) radioactive substances with operating wastewater or the exhaust air are derived from radiation protection legally approved equipment, so the derived quantity of activity is to limit that the annual exposure of members of the public on the basis of these derivatives does not exceed an effective dose of 0.3 milliSievert.
(2) the authority shall set lower dose limits in individual cases, if several such facilities contribute to the exposure of the population.
(3) to comply with the dose limit of 1 or 2, are to be determined by the authority in some cases discharge limits.
(4) compliance with the dose limit for the planned derivation limits pursuant to par. 3, using conservative assumptions for the route of exposure, the place to stay, is to prove the duration of the stay and the habits of a reference person. The authority may require that this proof is taught by the permit advertisers or permit holder.
(5) the proposed derivation limit not over the values of annex 12 is or for several installations do not have the appropriate fraction of these values can be assumed adherence to the dose limit of paragraph 1 or paragraph 2. In these cases, the values of annex 12 or corresponding fraction thereof are to set discharge limits. An explicit proof of compliance with the dose limit pursuant to paragraph 4 is not required.
(6) derivatives are records to do, containing in particular the type and activity of radioactive substances derived, as well as the timing of individual derivatives.
