X-ray emmissions from colour television receivers in New Zealand.


Colour television receivers produced for the New Zealand market have been tested to ensure that any x-radiation emmissions result in dose rates less than the 0.5mrem/h (500murem/h) limit allowed under the Radiation Protection Regulations, 1973. Five receivers representing the five different models available on the New Zealand market were surveyed and the maximum dose rate measured from any screen was 0.05murem/h. The estimated maximum annual radiation dose to an average viewer from the receivers surveyed will be less than 5murem or less than 5 x 10-minus 3 percent of the dose from natural background radiation. This level of x-radiation is well below that which could constitute a health hazard.
