Abstract: Recently, IRMM has assumed responsibility for organising regular measurement comparisons among those laboratories which provide radioactivity monitoring data from their country to authorities of the European Commission (EC) under obligations of the EURATOM Treaty. The most recent exercise under this International Comparison Scheme for Radioactivity Environmental Monitoring (ICS-REM) is presented here. The exercise was designed to evaluate the performance of the participating laboratories in measuring Cs-137, K-40 and Sr-90 activity in milk powder. The whole cycle of the intercomparison is described, including the establishment of traceable reference values, demonstration of the homogeneity of the distributed samples, treatment and measurement of samples in the participating laboratories, and evaluation of the results.
