2.1.5 Principle 5: Archive for Future Referencing

The legal entity responsible for the management of a radioactively contaminated or suspected radioactively contaminated site and/or groundwater should setup an “Archive for Future Referencing”.

The intent of Principle 5 is that from each formerly radioactively contaminated or suspected radioactively contaminated site and/or groundwater, the information is available that can be consulted for assessing the eventual risk of any remaining radioactive contamination according to risk assessments developed in the future.
The content of the “Archive for Future Referencing” has to contain information about what is present, what is not present and what has never been present.
