RELEASE OF POTENTIALLY CONTAMINATED MATERIAL DOE ORDER
5400.5, Ch. 2
Surface Contamination Levels
Prior to being released, property should be surveyed to
determine whether both removable and total surface
contamination (including contamination present on and
under any coating) is greater than the levels given in the
DOE Order 5400.5, Ch. 2.
Potential For Contamination
Property should be considered to be potentially contaminated if
it has been used or stored in radiological areas that could
contain unconfined radioactive material or that are exposed to
beams of particles capable of causing activation.
Material and Equipment in Radiological Areas established to
control surface or airborne radioactive material shall be treated
as potentially contaminated.
Where potentially contaminated surfaces are not accessible for
measurement, such property may be released after case by case
evaluation and documentation based on both the history of its
use and available measurements demonstrate that the
unsurveyable surfaces are likely to be within the release
