The first international conference of the European Commission, Belarus, the Russian Federation and the Ukraine on the radiological consequences of the Chernobyl accident will be held in Minsk, Belarus from 18 to 22 March 1996.

In June 1992, the Commission, Belarus, the Russian Federation and the Ukraine signed an agreement to implement joint research projects on the consequences of the Chernobyl accident in the field of radiation. This collaborative programme expanded progressively from 1992 to 1995, with the number of research projects increasing from seven to sixteen, involving 120 laboratories from the new independent States (NIS) and 80 from the European Union.

The main aim of the conference is to present the major achievements of this research programme and to promote an objective evaluation of these by the international scientific community. The conference has been scheduled to coincide with the tenth anniversary of the accident. The main topics will include:

- Environmental transfer and decontamination;
- Risk assessment and management;
- Health related issues, including dosimetry.
