The (International Atomic Energy Agency) IAEA’s fundamental safety objective is to protect people and the environment from harmful effects of ionizing radiation. The safety principles apply to all facilities and all activities to reduce existing radiation risks. Analytical quality assurance has gained in importance in many scientific areas, including the analysis of radioactive specimens that require a thorough investigation and regulations for safety and ecological reasons. The use of certified reference materials is an essential pillar for the assessment of the quality of analytical data. Still, such matrix-matched certified reference materials are unfortunately not available for most investigations relevant to the nuclear domain. Therefore, other strategies have to be established, i.e., to compare the analytical results obtained for a particular instrumental technique, with data from another methodology whose analyte detection is based on a different physical principle.
