"ALARA and Decommissioning", Saclay, France, December 1997
Optimisation of radiological protection has been shown to be a routine feature during major decommissioning operations in the nuclear industry sector. ALARA is not only considered as a principle but corresponds also to practices that determine important steps during the planning, the operation and feedback evaluation.
The presentations during the workshop described a wide variety of national approaches which depend on the legal requirements, the availability of funds, the industrial resources and, last but not least, the waste disposal routes in the different European countries. It was also shown that, as far ALARA implementation is concerned, the reality is still far from being ideal everywhere, and that a lot of problems have still to be solved.
