These reports give a detailed assessment of radioactivity in food and the environment and the public’s exposure to radiation during a specific year. They show that the public’s exposure to authorised discharges and direct radiation around the 39 nuclear sites in the UK remains within legal limits.
The reports bring together the nationwide monitoring programmes of the UK’s food standard agencies and environment agencies. This monitoring is independent of, and is also used as a check on, the monitoring carried out by site operators.
