The 8th EAN Workshop was devoted to “Occupational Radiological Protection Control through Ispection  and Self- assessment”. The objective of the Workshop was “to assess how regulatory authorisation and inspection, and internal controls (peer reviews, self assessment, etc.) contribute to achieving ALARA for occupational exposure”. A total of 70 participants from 19 European countries attended the Workshop; respectively half and one third of the audience were from the regulatory bodies and utilities from medical and industry sectors.

In total, there were 14 oral presentations, and 10 poster presentations, organised under the following titles:

  • Setting the Scene
  • Regulatory Bodies and Control Organisations
  • Licensees and
  • Workers

The opening session included a presentation of the results of an EAN questionnaire on the size and structure of national regulatory authorities. It also identified a series of issues and questions for later consideration by the Working Groups. Half of the time was devoted to this discussions in small groups on the following specific issues:

  • Inspection
  • Self assessment
  • Workers’ involvement and
  • Communication between stakeholders

8 main recommendations were produced and unanimously agreed on by the participants. They are dealing with inspectors training,as well as with the facts - that self assessment should become a regulatory requirement and give rise to guidance - and that the workers themselves should become active “stakeholders” in these processes – or that regulatory bodies network should be set up to harmonising inspections.
