Safety Guide for the Management of Naturally Occurring Radioactive Material (NORM) (2008)

The purpose of the Safety Guide is to assist regulators and industries in managing NORM and assessing the need for radiation protection measures. It takes account of recently developed international guidance on NORM management, and on assessing the need for regulation. It recognises that regulation will not always be the appropriate approach for dealing with NORM, and describes a graded approach to regulation for those cases where a regulatory approach is assessed as being necessary. It includes three detailed Annexes for the oil and gas, bauxite and phosphate industries. It is intended to prepare Annexes on other NORM related industries in future.
