Footnotes for Appendix A .

1A determination of whether the DACs are controlled by stochastic (St) or nonstochastic (organ) dose, or if they both give the same result (E), for each lung retention class, is given in this
column. The key to the organ notation for nonstochastic dose is: BS-Bone surface, K=Kidney, L=Liver, SW-Stomach wall, and T=Thyroid. A blank indicates that no calculations were per-
formed for the lung retention class shown.

2 The ICRP identifies tritiated water and carbon as having immediate uptake and distribution; therefore no solubility classes are designated. For the purposes of this table, the DAC values
are shown as being constant, independent of solubility class. For tritiated water, the inhalation DAC values allow for an additional 50% absorption through the skin, as described in ICRP
Publication No. 30: Limits for Intakes of Radionuclides by Workers. For elemental tritium, the DAC values are based solely on consideration of the dose-equivalent rate to the tissues of the
lung from inhaled tritium gas contained within the lung, without absorption in the tissues.

A dash indicates no values given for this data category.
• These values are appropriate for protection from radon combined with its short-lived daughters and are based on information given in ICRP Publication 32: Limits for Inhalation of Radon
Daughters by Workers and Federal Guidance Report No. 11: Limiting Values of Radionuclide Intake and Air Concentrations, and Dose Conversion Factors for Inhalation, Submersion, and
Ingestion (EPA 520/1-88-020). The values given are for 100% equilibrium concentration conditions of the radon daughters with the parent. To allow for an actual measured equilibrium
concentration or a demonstrated equilibrium concentration, the values given in this table should be multiplied by the ratio (100%/actual %) or (100%/demonstrated %), respectively. Alter-
natively, the DAC values for Rn-220 and Rn-222 may be replaced by 1 WL* and 1/3 WL*, respectively, for appropriate limiting of daughter concentrations. Because of the dosimetric consid-
erations for radon, no f, or lung clearance values are listed.

*A "Working Level" (WL) is any combination of short-lived radon daughters, in one liter of air without regard to the degree of equilibrium, that will result in the ultimate emission of 1.3
E+05 MeV of alpha energy.

5 For the calculations, f values were obtained from ICRP Publication 48: The Metabolism of Plutonium and Related Elements. It is assumed that the effective dose equivalents for inhalation are unchanged even though the f, values have changed. This is because the contribution to organ dose from inhalation is dependent mainly on transfer from lung to blood when f values are small. Also, the gastrointestinal tract dose would be unchanged because the fraction of activity passing through the tract is (1.0-f
