Traduction en anglais : Control of radioactive contamination and radiation exposure in the environment : Tasks, techniques, implementation.
A brief historical abstract of the steps in the discovery of natural radioactivity and development of man-made radioactivity is presented, as well as the historical development of the control of radioactivity in the environment.
The goals of control measures and the tasks, classified by the possible sources of release, are demonstrated and the required methods described (measuring methods, evaluation methods, and information techniques).
The control measures, based on different legal principles, are introduced and their technological implementation, including their current status, described.
Finally, an account is given of the progressive harmonisation of the national control systems, as well as of the integration of these control systems into international control and information networks.
