Abstract

The transboundary effect of the radioactive release during the Chernobyl accident highlighted the need for accurate and fast international exchange of radiological monitoring data. It showed the need for further improvement of national monitoring networks as well as multilateral exchange of data. In addition to the ECURIE system, 2 years ago a feasibility study called EURDEP was started at the Environment Institute of the JRC, Ispra, with the objective to regularly exchange radiological monitoring data between the European Commission and most European countries (including non-EU member states). Besides a general description of the system, this paper summarises the experience gained with EURDEP so far and describes the future perspectives and developments.
