Implementation of operational and extraordinary radioactivity monitoring

Operational and extraordinary radioactivity monitoring must be implemented by the radiation and nuclear facility operator or the provider of radiation activity that holds a permit to discharge radioactive substances in the environment.

Operational radioactivity monitoring is the monitoring of environmental radioactivity that emerges due to the release of radioactive substances.

Operational radioactivity monitoring entails:

  • emission monitoring of radioactivity of radiation or nuclear facility, including the monitoring of permitted emissions of waste radioactive substances in the environment and
  • emission monitoring of radioactivity, monitoring of radioactivity of foodstuffs and fodder as a result of burdens in the environment caused by the radiation of radioactive or nuclear facility.

Extraordinary radioactivity monitoring is the monitoring of the radioactivity in the environment that emerges due to the release of radioactive substances during extraordinary events.

The entity monitoring radioactivity may acquire an authorisation for monitoring or authorise an external provider of services who has an authorisation from the competent authority for the implementation of monitoring.
