Project management summary: The aim of the project is to build a reference standard for the emission of alpha and beta surface radionuclide sources and to produce a summary technical report. International Standard ISO 8769:2016 (ISO 8769:2017), which specifies the requirements for reference area sources, recommends that the reference laboratory determines the certified source emission value using a large area 2π proportional computer. CMI owns a suitable large area proportional computer and uses it for output control of manufactured radionuclide sources. Its metrological properties appear to be suitable for the purpose, but without further applied research it cannot be immediately used as a standard of emission quantity. The preparation of the announcement of a future reference standard represents a considerable amount of research and technical-administrative work.
