On 29 April 2022, the Government approved the Strategy of the Integrated Automated Radiation Monitoring System until 2024. This decision was due to the existing potential risks to nuclear and radiation safety, due to the full-scale russian invasion of Ukraine, and the lack of an integrated automated monitoring system to detect, analyze and predict the possible consequences of radiation emergencies. In addition, Ukraine does not possess a unified decision-making system that would allow assessing the consequences of accidents both within and beyond the areas of responsibility of facility decision-making systems or in the context of transboundary contamination and calculate the models of radioactive release transfer required to develop recommendations on radiation protection decision-making in Ukraine.
The implementation of the Strategy envisages the introduction of an integrated automated radiation monitoring system in two stages. The first will last until the end of 2022, within which it is planned to determine the range of entities that will collect, process and transmit radiological information, and develop regulations necessary for the construction and operation of an integrated automated radiation monitoring system. The second stage is planned by the end of 2024, its objective is to ensure the integration of individual monitoring entities into a unified system, commissioning of an integrated automated radiation monitoring system and its synchronization with the EU radiological monitoring system.
Creation of an integrated automated radiation monitoring system will provide a generalization of radiation monitoring results in a unified automated system for automated collection, processing, transmission and analysis of radiation situation in Ukraine and in the field of transboundary transfer of radionuclides, and forecast consequences of emergency situations.
