Detail

We published 2 guidance documents in May 2004 to help a wide range of bodies with planning and decontamination of buildings and infrastructure following chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear (CBRN) incidents - whatever the cause.

Both documents contribute to the continuing process of strengthening resilience through encouraging organisations to understand the issues and the part they have to play and to prepare accordingly. Partnership between organisations is seen as key to the effective response to an incident and rapid recovery from it.

This document gives advice on pre-planning measures owners and managers can take to prevent contamination, to limit the spread of any contamination occurring, and to make decontamination easier. The guidance includes a checklist to help people to assess risk and vulnerability and to consider a wide range of potential improvement measures.
