Required Data

On what basis is the data collected?

With the introduction of the new Radiation Protection Act on 31.12.2018, our customers are obliged (§168 paragraph 1 StrlSchG) to provide all required data according to §170 in conjunction with §167 StrlSchG to the monitoring service and the national dose register of Bundesamt für Strahlenschutz (Bfs).

Commissioned data processing - yes or no?

According to Art. 4 No. 8 of the DSGVO, commissioned processing exists if an entity processes personal data on behalf of the controller. In this case, the commissioned company must process personal data for another company in accordance with instructions. Therefore, if there is only a commissioning of non-specialized services of a different kind, in which personal data is transferred, there is no need to conclude such a contract.

See also §62 BDSG (para. 5):

„Die Verarbeitung durch einen Auftragsverarbeiter hat auf der Grundlage eines Vertrags oder eines anderen Rechtsinstruments zu erfolgen, der oder das den Auftragsverarbeiter an den Verantwortlichen bindet und der oder das den Gegenstand, die Dauer, die Art und den Zweck der Verarbeitung, die Art der personenbezogenen Daten, die Kategorien betroffener Personen und die Rechte und Pflichten des Verantwortlichen festlegt. Der Vertrag oder das andere Rechtsinstrument haben insbesondere vorzusehen, dass der Auftragsverarbeiter nur auf dokumentierte Weisung des Verantwortlichen handelt; ist der Auftragsverarbeiter der Auffassung, dass eine Weisung rechtswidrig ist, hat er den Verantwortlichen unverzüglich zu informieren;“

What does "BA-Betriebsnummer" mean?

The BA-Betriebsnummer is a number assigned by the Federal Employment Agency in accordance with §18i SGB IV for your employment company (eight-digit number consisting only of digits).

What is a radiation passport and do we need it?

A radiation passport is a document that must be carried by persons who are exposed to ionizing radiation for occupational reasons in establishments where they are not employed.

If you and your employees are only to be occupationally exposed to radiation on your own premises, you do not need a radiation passport.
