Summary:

Aim. For many years, SRC-FMBC carried out comprehensive monitoring of radiation-hygienic situation in order to assess the dynamics of the measurement of the environmental media, public health and to develop health and epidemiological measures to assure the public welfare. Matherial and methods. The radiation-hygienic conditions of the environment are assessed by comparing the obtained results with the regional background values. Result. The radionuclide concentrations in the environmental media within the NPP supervision area do not exceed typical regional background values. We studied the radionuclide concentrations in some foodstuffs of plant and animal origin, drinking water and other environmental media. The concentrations of 137Cs and 90Sr in foodstuffs are the same as in the similar foodstuffs from other regions and the whole Russia. This is due to global precipitation of 137Cs and 90Sr following the nuclear weapons tests and accident at the Chernobyl NPP of 1986. Conclusion. According to analysis of the main
health indicators of the public living around the NPP, general state of the adult and children public is healthy. There is no impact of the NPP on negative trends in some changing indicators of the adult and children public health.

Summary:

The Argun Production Mining and Chemical Association is a multi-activity mining company which perfprms mining of uranium ore, carries out refining of such ores in hydrometallurgical process to produce natural uranium oxide. In order to establish the strategy and develop criteria for the site remediation, independent radiation hygienic monitoring is being carried out over some years. The researches performed showed that there is a significant excess of 226Ra and 232Th content compared to areas outside the zone of influence of uranium mining.

Problems of nuclear heritage regulation

Year: 2013, volume 9 Issue: №4 Pages: 811-815
Heading: Hygiene Article type: Review
Authors: Kotenko K.V., Shandala N.K.

Summary:

Nuclear heritage are the objects of defense industry complex which aren't meeting modern requirements of nuclear and radiation safety, and also the territories polluted owing to previous nuclear activity and production of uranium. The main existing problem consists in the absence in the current legislation of complex standard and legal bases of activity on questions of the address with the nuclear heritage, the principles providing realization directed on prevention of harmful effects of objects of such heritage on the person and environment, decrease of burden on the subsequent generations.
