This paper reports the results of radiological measurements taken for the last 3 years in the controlled area and adjacent zone of the Tritium Laboratory of the the Horia Hulubei National Institute for Physics and Nuclear Engineering, Magurele. The radiological characterization has been performed by determination of total and removed tritium contamination for the following surfaces: pavement, walls, windows, radiochemical tables, radionuclide fume cupboards, glove boxes, and sinks. The fixed tritium contamination does not present representative radiological risk because beta particles emitted by tritium are unable to penetrate the skin. The removed tritium contamination represents that component of the total surface contamination that can be taken by mechanical processes. The removed contamination was analyzed as a priority because it represents the main radiological risk factor in tritium laboratories. The determination of surface contamination has been carried out by scanning of the analyzed surfaces using an LB 1230 UMo tritium surface monitor with an LB 1230 detector and by a smear test using extruded polystyrene smears followed by measurement of the removed activity with a liquid scintillation counter. The total surface contamination values, obtained by scanning, were below the detection limit of the equipment, except for radiochemical hood surfaces. The removed tritium contamination determined values are in the domain of 5 … 450 Bq/dm2. At the department level, the obtained values for surface tritium contamination are at the background level.
