Basic Standards Agreed

Negotiations have finally been concluded on the Basic Safety Standards for protection against the dangers from ionizing radiation.

The text was agreed on 29 May by the Atomic Questions Group. This new Directive will streamline the existing legislation and bring coherence to regulatory and protection measures for the public, workers and patients.

It will also bring European legislation into line with current scientific understanding and it will expand provisions for dealing with natural radiation sources such as radon.
