Section II: Object
ENER/D3/2021-191 Study on monitoring of Radioactive Discharges from Nuclear Facilities in the EU
Recommendation 2004/2/Euratom provides guidance to the EU countries on the reporting of discharges of radioactive nuclides from nuclear power reactors and reprocessing plants. The Commission's Radioactive Discharges Database (RADD) compiles the information provided by the EU countries.
The study focuses on those facilities, which have an authorisation to discharge significant amounts of radioactivity in the environment, and which are required to have technical systems in place to carry out continuous or batch-wise monitoring of these discharges. The principal objective of the project is to provide an update of the status of radioactive discharge monitoring at major nuclear facilities in the EU Member States, both in terms of regulatory framework and technology.
The project should outline the current state of the art in discharge (liquid and gaseous) monitoring technology and present the possible needs for development in each facility type included in the study.
Particular attention should be paid to the reasons causing uncertainty in the monitoring results. In addition, the project should review the regulatory status in the Member States and outline the possible needs for improvement, both on national and on EU level.
The project should cover both continuous and batch-wise discharge monitoring systems, including the possible systems dedicated to monitoring in the event of an emergency. Disposal of solid radioactive material is not included. The state of the art and possible challenges should be described. Based on this information, the contractor should analyse the adequacy of the current arrangements and prepare a best practise guideline for use by the MS competent authorities and the Commission Art. 35 verification teams.
The results of the study will provide background for future verifications by the Commission and will enable the MS to understand the state of the art in the discharge monitoring technology.
