Purpose: This paper aims to explore approaches for obtaining KOLAS certification for masks develope d as protective equipment for use during evacuation processes in the event of a radiation disaster involving residents within a radiation emergency planning zone. Method: Various reports, papers, and data from the KOLAS accreditation bodies' websites were examined for this study. Result: Although domestic radiation disaster preparedness measures have been established to enhance resident protection, the distribution of protective equipment is limited to thyroid protection drugs. Supplementary support items like masks are necessary to prepare for radiation disasters. Currently, there is no KOLAS-accredited certification body for radiation protection masks. Conclusion: For masks that have established performance certification criteria, a dual process is required for KOLAS certification. This involves obtaining an official test report as an industrial respirator mask, receiving certification, and then obtaining a general test report based on internal standards.
연구목적: 본 논문은 방사선비상계획구역 내 거주하는 주민의 방사능재난 발생시 대피과정에서 사용할 수 있는 방호제품으로서 마스크를 개발하는 과정에서 KOLAS 인증을 받을 수 있는 방안을 연구하는 것이다. 연구방법: 각종 보고서와 논문, KOLAS 인정기구 및 각종 마스크 홈페이지 자료를 조사하여 연구하였다. 연구결과: 국내 방사능재난방재대책을 수립하여 주민보호조치를 강화하고 있으나 방호제품 보급은 갑상샘방호약품이 유일하다. 방사능재난에 대비하여 마스크와 같은 보조적인 지원용품 보급이 필요하다. 방호마스크를 공인인증할 수 있는 KOLAS 인정 공인기관이 없는 실정이다. 결론: 성능 인증기준이 있는 마스크의 경우 산업용 방진마스크로 공인시험성적서를 발급받고 인증을 받은 후에 자체 기준으로 일반성적서를 받는 이중 과정을 거쳐서 마스크의 KOLAS 인증이 가능하다.
