  • Abstract

    Under the terms of Article 36 of the Euratom Treaty, European Union Member States shall periodically communicate to the Commission information on environmental radioactivity levels on their national territory. Since the early 1960s, the Commission has compiled and published this information as a series of reports. The current report, covering the years 2012 to 2014, is the 35th in the series. This report endeavours to improve the clarity of information on levels of radioactivity in the European environment by making use of standardised reporting levels. These reporting levels are supported by more detailed radioactivity levels from a limited number of stations that provide high sensitivity measurements. The current report is the first in which the new EC Member State – Croatia, since July 2013 – is fully incorporated in the tables and the figures. As part of its DG Energy support programme, the Directorate for Nuclear Safety and Security of the EC Joint Research Centre (JRC) has introduced all environmental radioactivity results received from the Member States into the Radioactivity Environmental Monitoring (REM) database. The JRC collated, checked and loaded the data, prepared the tabulations and figures as appropriate and provided the draft of the report. I would like to express my gratitude for the JRC's assistance and for the cooperation provided by the national authorities who supplied the original data. This report is addressed to all who are concerned with radioactivity in the European environment.
