The Office of Air and Radiation (OAR) has requested the SAB to conduct a review on the technical accuracy and understandability of Revision 2 to the Multi-Agency Radiation Survey and Site Investigation Manual (MARSSIM). MARSSIM was developed by the technical staff of the four Federal agencies having authority for control of radioactive materials: the Department of Defense (DoD), the Department of Energy (DOE), EPA, and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC). It provides information on planning, conducting, evaluating, and documenting environmental radiological surveys of surface soil and building surfaces for demonstrating compliance with regulations.
