(2) The licensee or registrant and employer if the employer is not the licensee or registrant specifically authorizes the planned special exposure in writing before the exposure occurs.
(3) Before a planned special exposure, the licensee or registrant ensures that each individual involved is:
(a) Informed of the purpose of the planned operation;
(b) Informed of the estimated doses and associated potential risks and specific radiation levels or other conditions that might be involved in performing the task; and
(c) Instructed in the measures to be taken to keep the dose ALARA considering other risks that might be present.
(4) The licensee or registrant ascertains prior doses as required by subsection 64E-5.308(2), F.A.C., during the lifetime of each individual involved prior to permitting an individual to participate in a planned special exposure.
(5) As specified in subsection 64E-5.304(2), F.A.C., the licensee or registrant shall 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:
(a) The numerical values of any of the dose limits in subsection 64E-5.304(1), F.A.C., in any year; and
(b) Five times the annual dose limits in subsection 64E-5.304(1), F.A.C., during the individual's lifetime.
