  The European XFEL has been operating with the undulator beam line SASE1 and SASE3 since April 2017 and February 2018, respectively. Despite of the fact that the post-linac collimation has collimated the beam halo to ~20 σ level*, relative high radiation doses have been measured especially in the diagnostic undulator (DU) section**. In order to find the sources of beam losses after post-linac collimation, BDSIM simulations have been performed. In this paper, we will first present the possible losses generated by the wire scanners upstream of the undulators during a scan. The simulation results will be compared with the measured doses along SASE1 and SASE3 undulators. Based on the simulation results, we will estimate the frequency for wire scanner opera-tions. Besides, the simulations with large extension of beam halo hitting the vacuum chamber aperture transition will also be presented. Finally, other possible radiation dose sources will be discussed.
