PROTECT: Protection of the environment from ionising radiation in a regulatory context


The EC EURATOM Framework 6 funded PROTECT project (FI6R036425) set out to develop dose rate thresholds for wildlife to help to determine the risk of exposure to ionising radiation. Without such criteria any radiological protection framework for the environment cannot be applied usefully in a regulatory context. The PROTECT consortium consisted of five organisations: Centre for Ecology & Hydrology (UK), Environment Agency (England and Wales), IRSN (France), Norwegian Radiation Protection Authority (Norway) and the Swedish Radiation Safety Authority (Sweden).

An overview of the PROTECT project is available from the Executive Summary.
