18th European ALARA Network Workshop [organized in collaboration with ISOE], Marcoule, France, 11 – 13 March 2019

"ALARA in Decommissioning and Site Remediation"


Aims and objectives

The objectives of the workshop are:

  • To present the regulatory background and latest guidance and standards regarding radiation protection for decommissioning and site remediation; both in the nuclear and the non-nuclear sectors.
  • To examine the conceptual and the practical aspects of the optimisation (ALARA) principle in these fields for workers and the public. The workshop aims at gathering a large array of experience and feedback from work performed in nuclear installations, installations outside the nuclear fuel cycle (ex. research facilities) and legacy sites.
  • To discuss and investigate selected key themes and overriding issues with regard to ALARA; to identify remaining needs and perspectives.

 The workshop is jointly organized with the ISOE Working Group on Decommissioning (WG-DECOM).
