IAEA publishes radiological assessment reports

29 October 1998

The International Atomic Energy Authority has published the first in a series of radiological assessment reports, titled Reports on the Situation at the Atolls of Mururoa and Fangataufa.

Governments of a number of IAEA member states have requested the IAEA to provide assistance in applying international radiation protection standards and to provide advice on remediation measures.

The new series assesses areas contaminated by radioactive residues where activities took place which did not comply with international radiation protection standards. During the Cold War military activities were beyond the scope of international standards. Remediation of the areas the IAEA is studying is likely to be necessary.
