Survey of International Rules and Practices Regarding Delineation of and Access to Regulated Areas for Radiation Protection
European requirements for radiological protection, especially work on transposing the new EURATOM Directive on the basic radiological protection standards, are currently being revised. The Direction générale du travail (DGT - General Directorate of Labour) and the Autorité de Sûreté Nucléaire (ASN - Nuclear Safety Authority) therefore commissioned the Radiological Protection Standing Groups of experts (GPRAD and GPMED)1 to engage in a forward-looking debate on the delimitation of and access to regulated areas, within an ad hoc working group (called hereafter ‘Classification of Area WG’).
To fuel its debates, the ‘Classification of Area WG’ sought elements on international regulations and practices focusing on problem exposure situations in various areas of activity (nuclear, industrial, research, medical, transport and natural boosted). CEPN was entrusted with this study.
This report presents a summary of rules applicable in seven countries in terms of delimitation of and access to regulated radiological protection areas The countries are: Belgium, Spain, United States, Finland, United Kingdom, Sweden and Switzerland. Detailed sheets for each country can be found in the Annex.
Based on these summaries, three countries have been selected to apply their rules and practices in force to a dozen or so particular cases put together by the ‘Classification of Area WG’ that are representative of exposure situations. The three countries are Finland, United Kingdom and Switzerland. The case studies applied to each country are presented in the second part of this report.
