English term or phrase: operational intervention level (OIL) of 13 000 counts/min
In accordance with its emergency plan, the Fukushima Prefectural Government began monitoring evacuees as of 12 March, using an operational intervention level (OIL) of 13 000 counts/min that was established for personal decontamination prior to the accident.


More info:
Operational Intervention Level (OIL): The value of an environmental measurement at which a specific protective action or remedial action is taken in an emergency exposure or a chronic exposure situation.

Please confirm my understanding: It means that officials decided to take protective measures when according to the measurements, the amount of radiation reaches 13 000 counts/min.
