The availability of up to date regulatory norms and standards for nuclear and radiation safety, relevant to the management of nuclear legacy situations, combined with effective and efficient regulatory procedures for licensing and monitoring compliance, are considered to be extremely important. Accordingly the NRPA has set up regulatory cooperation programs with corresponding authorities in the Russian Federation. Cooperation began with the civilian regulatory authorities and was more recently extended to include the military authority and this joint cooperation supposed to develop the regulatory documents to improve supervision over nuclear and radiation safety while managing the nuclear military legacy facilities in Northwest Russia and other regions of the country.
In 2010, samples of sea water, sediment, and
biota were collected in the Barents Sea, the
North Sea, the Skagerrak and at a number of
coastal stations and fjords. Data on
radioactivity levels and trends in these areas
are summarised in this report.
The report describes different hypothetical accident scenarios at the Leningrad nuclear power plant for
both RBMK and VVER-1200 reactors. The estimated release is combined with different
meteorological scenarios to predict possible fallout of radioactive substances in Norway.
This report summarises some of the key findings from the activity of filling knowledge gaps in radiation protection methodologies for non-human biota, the GAPRAD project.
This report describes work carried out within the cooperation programme between the Norwegian Radiation Protection Authority and the Directorate of State Supervision for Nuclear and Radiation Safety of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation performed in 2008-2009. It focuses on development of improved regulatory documents and supervision procedures for handling spent nuclear fuel and radioactive waste at facilities that are no longer used by the Russian Federation Navy but that are still under military supervision and control.
Rapporten inneholder nasjonal rapport fra Norge til det fjerde tilsynsmøtet til Felleskonvensjonen om sikker håndtering av brukt brensel og sikker håndtering av radioaktivt avfall som blir avholdt 14. -23. mai 2012.
This report describes work carried out in 2008–2009 under the NRPA – Federal Medical-Biological Agency regulatory support program. It focuses on development of improved regulatory documents and supervision of remediation activities due to be carried out at Andreyev Bay, Saida Bay and Gremikha in Northwest Russia. The work program for 2010–2011 is also introduced.
Denne rapporten er basert på trusselvurderinger som har blitt utført i de sentralasiatiske landene, og beskriver de eksisterende regelverksproblemene i områder med atomarv og hvilke regelverk som bør utvikles innen prosjektets rammeverk.
This report deals with the environmental consequences in Norway after a hypothetical accident at Sellafield. The investigation is limited to the terrestrial environment, and focus on animals grazing natural pastures, plus wild berries and fungi. Only 137Cs is considered. The predicted consequences are severe – in particular for mutton and goat milk production.
