Assessment of radioactivity in food and the environment and the public's exposure to radiation during 2013.
This report covers sampling and analysis carried out in 2013 for the UK-wide monitoring programmes of the environment agencies and the Food Standards Agency.
It provides a detailed assessment of radioactivity in food and the environment and the public’s exposure to radiation during 2013.
The report shows that radioactivity in food is well within safe levels and that exposure to the public from authorised discharges and direct radiation around the 39 nuclear sites in the UK has remained within legal limits.
The monitoring programmes conducted by these agencies are independent of, and also used as a check on, site operators’ programmes.
