Individual dosimetry for exposure to beta particles in radiation protection deals essentially with the dosimetry of skin, i.e. the directional and individual dose equivalents at 0.07 mm depth for weakly penetrating radiation as indicated by the publications of ICRU and the ISO 6980. This article describes the procedure used to establish the primary standard in terms of absorbed dose to tissue of LNE-LNHB.
