10th International Symposium on Release of Radioactive Material from Regulatory Control
Scope of the Symposium
Since 1998 TÜV NORD has organized various symposia dealing with “Release of Radioactive Material from Regulatory Control”. Particularly, during the previous international symposium in Hamburg in 2013 more than 130 clearance experts have focused on the discussion of this issue. The discussions proved to be fruitful for harmonizing clearance levels and release procedures. This year we would like to continue this successful exchange.
From the start of the first symposium until now several clearance procedures and regulations have been implemented. Amongst these regulations is the EURATOM Directive 2013/59/ “Laying down basic safety standards for protection against the dangers arising from exposure to ionising radiation”, which aims to be implemented by the beginning of 2018. In this light, it is appropriate to once again exchange the experience and information in this field.
As experts from many countries are interested in the implementation requirements of the projected regulations for exemption and clearance, TÜV NORD has decided to organize a symposium, which is intended to take place on 7th – 9th November 2017 in the Melia Hotel in Berlin. On the evening of the 6th November you will have the opportunity of a pre-registration and a get-together.
