Abstract

Over the past decade, France has developed an electronic dose register at national level called SISERI. Institute for Radiological Protection and Nuclear Safety is in charge of the management of this information system. Besides the main purpose of being a central register of any doses measured for the individual dosimetric monitoring of all exposed workers, SISERI has been developed so as to constitute a tool for occupational physicians and radiation protection officers allowing access in real-time to the results of the individual monitoring. The SISERI information system centralises, verifies and keeps the records of all personal dosimetric results of the 370 000 workers annually monitored in France. Moreover, since the publication of a new order in 2013, employers shall declare any new workers in SISERI before the beginning of their occupation and they shall upload data concerning in particular the activity field/sector and the occupation of each worker. The enforcement of this new order is going to enrich the individual dosimetric information stored in SISERI. Thus, it is expected that more precise and accurate statistics on occupational exposure to ionising radiation in France will be established in the next few years.
