Safety is the top priority at nuclear power plants (NPP) and other nuclear installations. To this end, operators and vendors need to comply with all national and international standards as well as specified limit values for radiation protection. It is also important to demonstrate that radioactive materials are safely confined and handled so that the risk of radiation exposure is limited.
One of TÜV SÜD’s broad range of radiation protection services is the environmental impact assessment (EIA) for nuclear facilities, which incorporates measurement of radiation exposure in the environment due to airborne and liquid discharges. With our decades of experience in producing and assessing documentation for the handling, storage and transportation of radiological materials, we are ready to support you.
