The future programme of work in Radiation Protection Research within the the Fourth Framework Programme was provisionally approved by the European Council of Ministers on 1 December 1994. There are a number of significant changes in the way this new programme is structured and in how it will be implemented, that have important implications for European Union research in this area. Within the programme of research in DG XII, radiation protection will be carried out as part of the Nuclear Fission Safety specific programme, together with research on Reactor Safety and Radioactive Waste Management and Decommissioning. Additionally, work in collaboration with Belarus, Russia and the Ukraine carried out in relation to Chernobyl accident-related activities, which at present is separately funded, will become part of the main programme and will be extended to other areas of the former Soviet Union where there are radiological protection problems.
