A worldwide radionuclide network of 80 stations, part of the International Monitoring System, was designed to monitor compliance with the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty. After installation, the stations are certified to comply with the minimum requirements laid down by the Preparatory Commission of the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization. Among the several certification tests carried out at each station, the verification of the radionuclide activity concentrations is a crucial one and is based on an independent testing of the airflow rate measurement system and of the gamma detector system, as well as on the assessment of the samples collected during parallel sampling and measured at radionuclide laboratories.
