B.

the registrant and employer, if the employer is not the registrant, specifically authorizes the planned special exposure, in writing, before the exposure occurs;

C.

before a planned special exposure, the registrant ensures that each individual involved is:

E.

subject to part 4732.0410, the registrant must not authorize a planned special exposure that would cause an individual to receive a dose from all planned special exposures and all doses in excess of the limits to exceed:

the numerical value of any of the dose limits in part 4732.0410 in any year; and

(2)

five times the annual dose limits in part 4732.0410 during the individual's lifetime; and
