Answer to Question #11920 Submitted to "Ask the Experts"
Category: Health Physics Society and AAHP
The following question was answered by an expert in the appropriate field:
Do you have any referrals for radiation experts in the San Francisco Bay Area for a small, fee-based consulting project? I have an idea of what we need, but I would greatly appreciate professional guidance. While our company is based in San Francisco, our skincare products are manufactured about 150 kilometers (km) from Fukushima, Japan. Our manufacturer has been testing radiation levels to certify each shipment before it leaves the factory in Japan (recent on-site readings were 0.06 microsieverts per hour [µSv h-1]). We would like to have an additional check of radiation levels when we receive shipments in the United States and to have our public relations messages reviewed by a radiation expert.
