SR / OF / AF : Radioactivity

Last updated by Alessandro SARRETTA


Proposal: Revised technical guidelines to make explicit that marine radioactivity is in the scope of SR, OF and AF

Description: There is a lack of clarity as to which Annex data on marine radioactivity belongs to.  It was agreed that as this was a chemical characteristic of the marine and environment (including the intertidal area) it belonged to either SR or OF depending on the nature of the data.  Direct observations of marine radioactivity are in OF.  Sea areas defined according to marine radioactivity are in SR.  Similarly if the radioactivity is measured in the atmosphere then it is in scope for AF
