At the occasion of the EUROMET workshop on ionising radiation and radioactivity, it was decided to carry out a second intercomparison on air kerma rate (AKR) and activity measurements on 192Ir brachytherapy sources in the frame of EUROMET project 219. In this paper, the organisation of the intercomparison is described. An overview of each measurement method is given and the results obtained are discussed. Finally, the conclusions to be drawn from this intercomparison are presented.
