Gaps in radiation protection metrology

11th of September 2020

The Council Directive 2013/59/EURATOM sets out basic safety standards for protection against exposure to ionising radiation for workers, the public and the environment. Compliance with the corresponding legislation has become more complex due to stricter legal dose assessments, exposure limits and limits on activity concentrations as well as new technological developments and emerging complex practices. This workshop addressed the so-called gaps in metrology and capacities either in the scope of the Council Directive 2013/59/EURATOM or in some aspects of the EURATOM treaty.
In the field of radiation protection, the technological development creates new challenges fast. It is therefore necessary to provide access to identified problems and solutions on a European level. A virtual workshop on gaps in radiation protection metrology was held on 11th of September 2020 at PTB. More than 70 participants registered and participated in up to six parallel sessions.
This virtual workshop was part of the EMPIR project 19NET03 supportBSS1, which aims to prepare a European Metrology Network (EMN) for radiation protection to provide new metrological solutions for the future.
The presentations from the plenary session are available for the participants under Opens internal link in current windowthis link.
In the moment a further document is prepared to summarize the vivid discussion in the parallel sessions. As soon as this document is available, the participants of the workshop will be informed.
