International Chernobyl project - Input from the Commission of the European Communities to the evaluation of the relocation policy adopted by the former Soviet Union
In October 1989, the Government of the USSR formally requested the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to carry out an international experts' assessment of the concept which the USSR has evolved to enable the population to live safely in areas affected by radioactive contamination following the Chernobyl accident, and an evaluation of the effectiveness of the steps taken in those areas to safeguard the health of the population. The response to this request was a proposal for a multinational team to undertake an assessment of the radiological situation in the three affected Soviet Republics - the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic (UkrSSR), the Belorussian Soviet Socialist Republic (BSSR) and the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic (RSFSR). The International Chernobyl Project was established for this purpose and an international advisory committee, comprising scientists from ten countries and seven international organisations, was established to direct the project and be responsible for its findings. Because of the importance and wide interest shown in this area, a full account of the evaluation was prepared, and is published in this report.
