Radiometer sensitivity test using neutron radiation sources containing 300 grams of plutonium and in which the concentration of 93.3% 239P, or other sources of ionizing radiation, which causes the nei tron. 12. before portable radiometric control devices are measured in natural radiation background: 12.1. measuring natural gamma radiation background with a portable radiometer, radiometer recorder (probe) is located 1 m from the ground;
12.2. the measurement of the border inspection posts shall take place at least once a day out in the places where the goods or perform the radiometric control of vehicles;
12.3. the number and duration of measurement as appropriate radiometer manufacturer's technical parameters laid down in the documents. 13. the inspection of the goods and vehicles with stationary radiometer to observe the following requirements: 13.1 radiometer is continuously switched on;
13.2. the goods and the vehicle moving through the detector aisle at a steady speed that does not exceed the fixed radiometer technical signs the prescribed maximum speed;
13.3. If you exceed the fixed the warning threshold, the radiometer carried out a detailed examination by a portable radiometer. 14. goods and vehicle inspection with portable radiometer to observe the following requirements: 14.1. recording of the radiometer (probe) is located not further than 5 cm from the surface of the item or vehicle;
14.2. large dimensional product or vehicle, other than rail transport, checks the perimeter at different levels, each level at one point that the distance between the measuring points does not exceed 1 m; 14.3. railway composition checks each wagon around the perimeter on one level, but if the results of radiometric control instead of measuring a car about 50% higher than the natural background gamma radiation level, this wagon check around the perimeter at different levels, each level several points that the distance between the measuring points does not exceed 1 m 14.4. small item, if it is not packed, checked all the available surface. 15. State border guard officials conducting radiometric control, is responsible for: 15.1 radiometer operating rules;
15.2. radiometric measurement of quality;

15.3. the accuracy of the information obtained. III. Action by finding elevated levels of ionising radiation or revealing undeclared source 16. If the results of radiometric control measurement site about 50% higher than the natural background gamma radiation level or neutron radiation is found from the goods or vehicle, the national border guard official shall draw up a report on the increased level of ionizing radiation detection (annex) and their customs without delay to Exchange senior. Senior Customs Exchange fills the cargo section of the message and sends the message to the Centre and the security police. A border inspection post, which is not a customs official, message centre and security police sent the National Guard to the change of senior. 17. where the Declaration of the source is not specified, but the radiometric control is detected neutron radiation from the vehicle or goods or ionizing radiation exposure dose level of capacity is greater than 0.20 mSv/h, the oldest customs of the Exchange (if not at the border inspection post, customs officials of the national border guard Exchange senior) decide on the goods or the parking of the place of storage and asked downtown to organize detailed goods and means of transport. 18.
