Author: Environment Agency
Document Type: Monograph
Abstract:
This Technical Guidance Note (TGN) is issued by the Environment Agency. It is one of a series providing guidance to the Agencys staff and contractors, industry and other interested parties on the monitoring of releases from nuclear facilities and industrial processes, and on related environmental monitoring. This Note provides guidance on the monitoring of radioactive releases to atmosphere from nuclear facilities. The equipment used for monitoring and the way the equipment is used are described. Key points to be considered by inspectors in the review of monitoring system proposals and in conducting onsite inspections are identified. A similar Note has been prepared covering the monitoring of discharges of radioactive liquid effluents from nuclear facilities. A separate series of Notes on abatement includes Notes providing guidance on the abatement of emissions to atmosphere and of discharges of radioactive liquid effluents from nuclear facilities. A further TGN is being prepared to give guidance on the analysis of samples collected after monitoring.
