Approaches used for Clearance of Lands from Nuclear Facilities among Several Countries: Evaluation for Regulatory Input

The study entitled, “Approaches used for Clearance of Lands from Nuclear Facilities among Several Countries: Evaluation for Regulatory Input,” focuses on the issue of showing compliance with given clearance levels for site release (also called derived concentration guideline levels, DCGL:s).  The Swedish Radiation Safety Authority (SSM) intends to continue working on establishing such clearance levels in Sweden.  As a starting point, SSM foresees that levels applied will depend on the features of the specific site and on the expected future use of the land, for example farming or industrial use (i.e. green or brown field, respectively).
