When calibrating neutron monitors, it is important to correct for scattering effects. In general, the correction factors depend on the type of source and monitor used, and on the configuration of the calibration room. These correction factors have been determined for the specific non-symmetric configuration room used at SCK~UCEN by means of the different analytical techniques recommended by the ISO. These results are compared with each other and also with the outcome of numerical calculations performed using the Tripoli-3 and MCNP 4B code.
