Compendium of Measures

A Compendium of Measures to Reduce Radiation Exposure Following Events with not Insignificant Radiological Consequences (Catalogue of Countermeasures) has been produced to assist with the selection of situation-appropriate interventions. It lists a range of measures to be considered, in each case analysing their efficiency, advantages and disadvantages, such as viability, costs and public acceptance. The Compendium also deals with the management and disposal of agricultural produce which has become contaminated by radioactive substances.
