Detail

These handbooks (version 4), developed in conjunction with a wide range of expert stakeholders, provide guidance for the management of contaminated food production systems, inhabited areas and drinking water supplies, to help develop and implement a recovery strategy in the aftermath of a radiation incident.

They are aimed at:

  • national and local authorities
  • central government departments and agencies
  • radiation and health protection experts
  • emergency services
  • industry and others who may be involved in the recovery from a radiation incident

The handbooks can be used as a preparatory tool, under non-crisis conditions, to engage stakeholders and to develop local and regional plans.

Previous versions were HPA-RPD-064 (version 3), published in 2009, HPA-RPD-042 (version 2), published in 2008, and HPA-RPD-002 (version 1) published in 2005.
