International Experts Meeting In Vienna To Discuss Radiation Protection

1/15/2014 3:50 AM ET

An International Experts Meeting on Radiation Protection will be held in Vienna next month to discuss lessons and challenges from the Fukushima nuclear accident.

The 2011 March earthquake and the following tsunami that crippled the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant has brought to the forefront important challenges facing the international radiation protection regime.

As a result of the disaster, and in line with the its Action Plan on Nuclear Safety, the International Atomic Energy Agency (AIEA) is hosting an International Experts’ Meeting (IEM) on Radiation Protection after the Fukushima Daiichi Accident: Promoting Confidence and Understanding. The meeting, to be held from 17 to 21 February, will bring some of the world’s foremost experts and speakers on radiation protection to discuss a wide range of issues, IAEA said in a press release. Topics include the management of radiation exposures, potential health effects from the Fukushima accident, land management and public communication. Lessons from past accidents will also be reviewed. Sigurdur Magnusson, Director of Iceland’s Radiation Protection Authority, will be chairing the meeting.
