The UK Health Protection Agency's Radiation Protection Division (formerly the National Radiological Protection Board, NRPB) has completed a major modernisation of its TLD service. The new service was launched in November 2006 and is based on Harshaw TLD dosemeters, using LiF:Mg,Cu,P, and readers. This paper describes the management and operational aspects of the service.
