Abstract: In low-level germanium spectrometry, the fundamental goal is reducing the detection limits. However, ensuring the accuracy and compatibility of the measurements' results in different laboratories is also very important. This has been particularly highlighted within the GERDA collaboration, which incorpporates several low-level laboratories. For this reason four institutes of GERDA participated in the National Physics Laboratory's "Environmental Radioactivity Comparison 2005" exercise. This intercomparison study allowed comparing the accuracy of the measurements and the different evaluation techniques between many low-level laboratories, using the same standard low-radioactivity mixture.
