Verifications of radiation monitoring in EU countries

The European Commission carries out verifications of arrangements for monitoring radioactivity in air, water, soil and foodstuffs in all EU countries. These can be extended to also cover the monitoring of radioactive discharges from nuclear or medical facilities, as well as the provisions in place for radioactivity monitoring in the event of a radiation emergency.

Verification targets are selected according to their radiological significance or public interest - the visits are then announced to the country concerned at least 3 months in advance. However, in the event of a significant radioactive release or other radiation event arousing public interest, the Commission can carry out a verification visit at short notice. Practical arrangements for the verification visits are described in Communication 2006/C 155/02.
