A Radioanalytica Emergency Procedures Manual Database (REPMD) will be an important tool assist laboratories preparing for emergency response to a sudden release of radioactitivy into the environment.

REPMD is intended to be flexible, searchable, and interactive to accommodate a wide a range of available techniques while being protected from unauthorized modifications. Website access by the world-wide scientific community will make the database a foundation for international comparison. The information in the database will also serve as a comprehensive and periodically updated source of methods and procedures suitable for training programs and rapid reference.
