Radiation protection for decommissioning


Technical training delivered by experts for newcomers to the field of decommissioning.

Training description:

The radiological approach in the decommissioning sphere is quite close to the radiological approach of an operational atmosphere; nevertheless, some important specificities have to be accounted for.

The course objectives are:

  • To give a basic radiation protection knowledge to the students,
  • To present the ALARA approach,
  • To highlight the characteristics and specificities of radiation protection as applied to decommissioning especially concerning internal and external exposure risk.

At the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Explain the radioprotection regulatory framework and its impact in the decommissioning field,
  • Put forward solutions in order to limit the integrated dose,
  • Limit internal exposure during the decommissioning phase,
  • Explain dosimetry optimization management.
