Introduction

It is now generally accepted that there is a need to explicity demonstrate that the environment is protected from authorised discharges of radioactive substances. In response a number of assessment tools (models) have been developed. As the need for environmental assessment increase there is an increasing requirement to ensure that regulators, industry and their representatives are conversant with assessment objectives, know how to use available tool, can interpret the results and understand the implications of how the tools are used.

The

Natural Environment Research Council has provide funding, under its Knowledge Exchange programme, to develop training packages (including on-line training materials) on radiological environmental assessment aimed specifically aimed at regulators and industry and those who may conduct assessment on their behalf. The project is lead by the Centre for Ecology & Hydrology with collaborators from the England & Wales Environment Agency, Institute for Radiological Protection and Nuclear Safety (IRSN) and Westlakes Scientific Consulting. The training programme will be focussed towards the use of the ERICA Tool however, we will also consider other approaches.

We are intending to run four two day courses although if there is sufficient demand we may be able to arrange more. The first course will be ?????? April 2010 in ??. See course for information on [Course Details], costs and email link for registering an interest in attending a course. If you want to be kept informed of our activities please register to receive our [Newsletter].

As this website (well it's a Wiki really - see [Tips for using this Wiki]) and training programme develop there will be interactive [training materials] available.

All of the outputs from the EC EURATOM PROTECT project have been moved to this website as have those from the earlier EURATOM projects ERICA, FASSET and EPIC.
