The requirements for personal dosimeters and dosimetry services given by the International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP) publication 26, ICRP publication 35, ICRP publication 60 and ICRP publication 75 are summarized and compared with the requirements given in relevant international standards. Most standards could be made more relevant to actual workplace conditions. In some standards, the required tests of energy and angular dependence of the response are not sufficient, or requirements on overall uncertainty are lacking.
