The environmental quality objective A Safe Radiation aims to ensure that:
– human exposure to harmful radiation in occupational and other environments is limited as far as reasonably possible,
– discharges of radioactive substances into the environment are limited so as to protect human health and biodiversity,
– the annual incidence of skin cancer caused by ultraviolet radiation is lower than in the year 2000, and
– exposure to electromagnetic fields in occupational and other environments is so low that there is no negative impact on human health or on biodiversity.
Close. The environmental quality objective is close to being achieved. Plans now exist for policy instruments that will be decided on before 2020.
