Radon is the largest and most variable contributor to the radiation dose to the public. Surveys of radon levels in homes and other buildings have been carried out throughout Europe to determine the magnitude of average exposures and to identify situations where excessive exposures occur. However, measurements are carried out with different types of detectors. To ensure quality and international comparison of radon measurements, it is important to compare detectors. This report presents the results of the third intercomparison of active and passive radon detectors in a series of three, originally initiated by the European Commission in 1996.
