Abstract : The maintenance of accurate radioactive material accountability records is one of the perpetual problems associated with the pursuit of an effective health physics program. A small but vitally important section of the accountability requirement is the periodic leak testing of all sealed quantities of radioactive materials. Leak test records must must be maintained to show that the tests were performed, and that leakage, if any, is within the allowable limits. There are many methods that can be used to satisfy the record keeping requirements. The choice of method is somewhat dictated by the size of the inventory and the available computational equipment. Where a modern multi-language digital computer is available, the computerization of the inventory maintenance problem will provide for accurate records at low cost. One such scheme of computer record keeping is presented. (Author) Portions of this document are not fully legible.
