Polysulphone (PS) dosimetry has been used for more than 30 years to quantitate the erythemally effective personal doses received by anatomic sites. The calibration of PS dosimeters is performed exposing a set of PS dosimeters on a horizontal plane and measuring meanwhile the UV doses received using calibrated instruments. In this study, data collected during field campaigns, using horizontal and tilted dosimeters, were analyzed to investigate the applicability of the horizontal calibration to differently inclined dosimeters, as anatomic sites usually are. Caution should be used when the calibration is performed under high incidence angle and/or high albedo.
