AGES Radiation Protection

We support the federal ministries responsible for radiation protection in protecting the population from radioactivity. To this end, we perform various tasks in areas such as emergency planning, food control, environmental monitoring and radon protection. We also ensure that all measuring stations in Austria are prepared and operational for an emergency at all times.
