    Book Description. One of a series giving practical advice on methods of reducing radon levels in existing dwellings, based on a large body of remedial work carried out to advice given by BRE, and on discussions with others working in the field. This study showed that the average radon concentration was ± Bq/m 3 in residential dwellings. The average effective dose was mSv/y. The average effective dose was mSv/y. The concentration of radon in % of the houses was found to be greater than Bq/m 3, which is above the level allowed by the World Health Cited by: 6.

    The presence of radon in dwellings is an important indicator of the exposure of the population at the beginning and in the course of the process of reducing indoor radon. Considering the linear expo-sure/response relationship between radon and lung cancer risk, the arithmetic mean is the most rele- File Size: 1MB. To control for radon in the construction of new residential homes, see Reducing Radon in New Construction of 1 & 2 Family Dwellings and Townhouses (CCAH). * American Society for Testing and Materials International, or ASTMI; an American National Standards Institute, or ANSI, approved consensus standard.

Another third-party standard is ANSI/AARST CCAH— (also known as "RRNC Reducing Radon in New Construction of 1 & 2 Family Dwellings and Townhouses"), developed by the American Association of Radon Scientists and Technologists (AARST) and approved by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).
