Procedures for monitoring and decontamination,
(a) Contamination levels that indicate
decontamination is required.
(b) Procedures for decontamination, and re-
monitoring to determine its effectiveness.
(c) Procedures for recordkeeping. For each
individual, vehicle or article surveyed, a record
should be kept of the date and location of
monitoring, methods and instruments used,
extent of any contamination found,

(d) Procedures for containment and disposal of
contaminated wash and rinse solutions and

Procedures for follow-up actions (e.g. subsequent
monitoring and medical surveillance) for
7.5 Emergency Planning Zones (EPZs)
The emergency plan should define the size of the plume
emergency planning zone (EPZ) limit and specifically
note what portions of the EPZs fall onsite and offsite.
b. If the hazards assessment shows that the ingestion
pathway is relevant to the materials and release modes of
concern for a facility, the emergency plan should include
an ingestion pathway EPZ.
The emergency plan should be supported by procedures
that ensure that the development of EPZs for a DOE
facility include the following:
