Developments in Discharge Monitoring at Nuclear Sites

A workshop on: “Developments in Discharge Monitoring at Nuclear Sites” will take place 27 November 2012 at The Centre at BirchwoodPark, Warrington,WA3 6YN.

The monitoring of discharges from nuclear sites is an important regulatory requirement to demonstrate compliance with authorised limits and to provide data for the estimation of radiological impacts. Measurement methodologies are changing in response to technological innovations, new standards and technical guidance, and extension of the MCERTS scheme to the nuclear industry. This workshop will provide an update on these developments and an opportunity to debate their future implementation at both existing and new build nuclear sites.
