Radiation Protection Regulations
17 (1) When the Commission or a designated officer authorized under paragraph 37(2)(h) of the Act authorizes the return to work of a person referred to in section 16, the authorization may specify conditions and prorated dose limits.
(2) For the purpose of this section, a prorated effective dose limit is the product obtained by multiplying the applicable dose limit prescribed by section 13 or 15 by the ratio of the number of months remaining in the dosimetry period to the total number of months in the dosimetry period.
(3) If an equivalent dose that exceeds the applicable equivalent dose limit prescribed by section 14 or 15 is received by or committed to a person and the Commission or a designated officer authorized under paragraph 37(2)(h) of the Act authorizes the return to work of that person, the equivalent dose limit for the dosimetry period is the sum of the equivalent dose limit that was exceeded and the equivalent dose that was received by and committed to the person up to the time that the person was required to leave work in accordance with paragraph 16(b).
