Foros de protección radiológica

The Spanish Nuclear Safety Council (CSN) has full competence in radiological protection of workers, the public and the environment matters.

Scientific societies have the objective of grouping together all the professionals in their respective fields of interest and providing a space for dialogue, communication, information and participation among their members, the population and companies and public and private institutions whose activities relate to these matters. Without prejudice to the authority of the CSN, the application and maintenance of an appropriate safety and radiological protection culture requires that attitudes and relationships among the regulatory body and the professionals that carry out radiological protection functions in the facilities are carried out within a framework that favours communication and good relationships.

Within this framework, which allows the joint discussion of objectives, regulatory requirements and the optimisation of available resources, various forums have been created in the following areas:

•    In hospitals.

•    In the industrial area.

•    In Radiological Protection Technical Units (RPTUs).
