(e) The procedures should provide for alarms and
other systems for the surveillance and detection
of threats to the material control and
accountability of nuclear materials and special
The emergency plan should provide for the
capability for field monitoring and for determining
the integrated impact of the release.
(a) Procedures should identify methods and
resources for field monitoring. The field
monitoring capability should include, as
appropriate (1) direct measurement of the
radiation dose rate resulting from the presence
of radioactive materials in air or on con-
taminated surfaces, and (2) the sampling and
appropriate analysis of air, water, soil, and
vegetation to determine the concentration of
radioactive or chemical contaminants.
(b) Procedures should provide for the extent of the
field monitoring being dependent on the highest
potential emergency classification indicated by
facilities' hazards assessments.
(1) The procedures should provide for the
capability for field monitoring throughout
the EPZ for facilities that have hazards for
potential classification of Site Area
Emergency and/or General Emergency.
Field monitoring activities beyond the EPZ
should be planned for to confirm predic-
tions that hazards are not present.
(2) The procedures may provide for field
monitoring in the vicinity of a facility
whose hazards assessment indicates no
potential for an emergency classification
more severe than an Alert.
