Invitation to the 2nd Radon Network Meeting

 

Kick-off Event September 2021

More than 50 representatives from the construction industry, stakeholders, radon experts, representatives of the authorities, experts from the health sector and others interested in the topic of radon from all over Austria accepted the invitation of the Radon Expert Office to the kick-off event of the Radon Network Austria.

With the Radiation Protection Act coming into force in 2020 and the new Radon Protection Ordinance , radon protection areas will be designated in Austria for the first time. For all workplaces in the ground floor and basement, there is now an obligation to carry out a radon measurement in the affected municipalities. Experts from the provinces of Upper Austria and Carinthia as well as from the Fachstelle für Radon explained different aspects and challenges of radon protection in buildings.

In the course of round-table discussions, the participants were able to actively contribute their ideas, wishes and visions for the Radon Network Austria in small groups. The results will be taken into account in the design of the Radon Network.
