Abstract

Immediately after the Chernobyl accident most European countries established or enhanced their national radioactivity monitoring and information systems. The large transboundary effect of the radioactive release also triggered the need for bilateral and international agreements on the exchange of radiological information in case of a nuclear accident. Based on the experiences gained from existing bilateral and multilateral data exchange the Commission of the European Communities has made provision for and is developing technical systems to exchange information of common interest.
