NUCLEAR AND RADIOLOGICAL EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS AND RESPONSE – SETTING UP THE EUROPEAN NETWORK OF BIOLOGICAL DOSIMETRY AND PHYSICAL RETROSPECTIVE DOSIMETRY (RENEB - REALIZING THE EUROPEAN NETWORK OF DOSIMETRY)

There is a crescent concerning with the real hypothesis of a large scale radiological event, not only due to possible accidents in nuclear facilities but particularly as a result of terrorist attacks. These events will result in a large number of victims that expect to be individually monitored. In this way, transnational networks are working to standardize and harmonize procedures to perform physical measurements and analysis of biological samples. This harmonization includes homogenization of procedures within the individual laboratories, maintenance of qualified staff, knowledge of the laboratory capacity in crisis situations and common training through implementation of periodic exercises (intercomparisons).
