2.1.4 Principle 4: Immediate action

The legal entity responsible for the management of a radioactively contaminated or suspected radioactively contaminated site and/or groundwater should perform all measures so that Principle 1, Protection of People and the Environment, is fulfilled.

The intent of Principle 4 is to make it unambiguous clear that the legal entity has to act and will be kept (socially and financially) responsible for any damage, e.g., social, health, environmental impacts, etc., by any negligence.
