ENA Workshop 2020

20.10.2020 - 22.10.2020


Naturally occurring radioactive material (NORM) is an increasingly important subject within the radiation protection community, having an impact on the daily operation of many branches of industry. The first of a series of conferences on NORM was held in Amsterdam in 1997, followed by several conferences and workshops.

Current developments in technologies, legislation and science, a regular exchange of experiences, best practice as well as societal perception issues make a regular meeting of experts from all these fields not only interesting but indispensable! ENA, the European NORM Association, organises NORM Workshops to meet this need from a European perspective. The recent implementation of the 2013 European Basic Safety Standards Directive by EU member states makes this exchange of experience even more relevant.

Announcement of the 2nd ENA workshop

The next ENA Workshop will be held online on 20-22 October 2020 hosted by AGES, the Austrian Agency for Health & Food Safety. This conference can be attended by members and non-members of the ENA, though members will enjoy some extra benefits, such as a reduction of the attendance fees and participation in the working groups.

The three-day workshop will not only provide an interesting update on the state of the art by experienced experts but also offer plenty of time to exchange experiences, discuss aspects of interest and to network.

The workshop will be structured along four topical sessions:

• NORM in building materials and re-use/recycling of NORM
• NORM in the industry (including transport-related issues)
• NORM in the environment
• Decommissioning of NORM facilities

Invited keynote speakers include

  • Jim Hondros, IRPA
  • Jean-François Lecomte, ICRP and
  • Oskar van Drongen, Nederlandse Aardolie Maatschappij

ENA members are invited to attend the General Assembly of ENA.
