NERIS Topical Workshop - Madrid 2013

This Topical Workshop has been organised at the initiative of the NERIS Working Group on Contaminated Goods, focussing on international experiences in the management of contaminated foodstuff and other goods after Chernobyl and Fukushima accidents and particularly in Japan, Belarus, Norway and the UK: experts and other stakeholders from these countries have been invited for presenting their feedback on these issues. International organisations (e.g. IAEA, EC, FAO, NEA-OECD) were also expected to share their recent international experiences in the management, monitoring and radioactivity control of goods coming from Japan. At the end of the workshop, a round table has been organised to discuss the lessons learned and challenges for the management of contaminated goods.
