To a certain extent, the public regard radiation from nuclear facilities as more dangerous than that from natural sources or medicinal applications even though there is no scientific justification for this view. Operators of nuclear facilities endeavour to keep radiation releases at a level much below the limits specified in law. The latter are defined in such a way that the limit set by the Swiss Federal Council in the Radiological Protection Ordinance for public exposure to radiation is not exceeded even if very unfavourable assumptions were to apply.
In its 12th Annual Report on Radiological Protection, ENSI summarises and analyses the release of radioactive materials from Swiss nuclear facilities. All nuclear facilities complied with the limits in 2015 and in some cases by a very large margin.
In its 11th Annual Report on Radiological Protection, ENSI summarises and analyses the release of radioactive materials from Swiss nuclear facilities. All nuclear facilities complied with the limits in 2014 and in some cases by a very large margin.
In its 10th Annual Report on Radiological Protection, ENSI summarises and analyses the release of radioactive materials from Swiss nuclear facilities. All nuclear facilities complied with the limits in 2013 and in some cases by a very large margin.
In this 9th Annual Report, ENSI focusses on radiological protection in Swiss nuclear facilities. The average individual dose has changed little compared with previous years. At 0.7 mSv, it is significantly below the limit both for persons exposed to radiation during their work (20 mSv) and the annual average rate of exposure for the population […]
This Annual Report of ENSI deals solely with radiological protection in nuclear facilities in Switzerland: Section A covers both exposure rates for staff and individual job rates whereas Section B deals with releases from nuclear facilities and the monitoring of radioactivity in their immediate vicinity. Compared with previous years, there was little change in either […]
This is the 7th Annual Report of ENSI on radiological protection in Swiss nuclear facilities. Section A deals with doses for staff and individual jobs and Section B covers releases from nuclear facilities and the monitoring of environmental radioactivity in their immediate vicinity.
On January 1st 2009, HSK became ENSI, the Swiss Federal Nuclear Safety Inspectorate and at the same time the new body became independent of the Swiss Federal Office of Energy. However, the remit of the new regulatory body remains unchanged. ENSI continues to monitor ionising radiation and radioactivity in Swiss nuclear facilities and their immediate […]
2008 was a very special year for HSK – in fact it was its last. On 1 January 2009, HSK became ENSI, the Swiss Federal Nuclear Safety Inspectorate. Further information on the change can be found in the Surveillance Report of ENSI for 2008. To simplify matters for the reader, the new designation of ENSI […]
This is the third year in which the Inspectorate has produced a summary report on its regulatory work in the field of radiological protection. Prior to that, the various topics were the subject of separate reports produced by the Inspectorate and other Federal offices.
Dans ce rapport annuel 2005, la DSN donne une vue d’ensemble de la radioprotection dans son domaine de surveillance. Jusqu’à présent, les thèmes qui le constituent étaient abordés et traités dans le rapport de dosimétrie et dans celui sur la radioactivité de l’environnement, destinés tous deux à l’Office fédéral de la santé publique et élaborés […]
The Annual Report of the Swiss Nuclear Safety Inspectorate for 2004 provides an overview of the Inspectorate’s work in supervising radiological protection in nuclear installations. In the past, the subjects covered by this Report formed part of the Dosimetry and Environmental Radioactivity reports compiled by the Inspectorate and supplied to the Swiss Federal Office of […]
