For a society safe from the effects of radiation
Our vision is a society safe from harmful effects of radiation. We work proactively and preventively with nuclear safety, radiation protection and nuclear non-proliferation in order to protect people and the environment from the harmful effects of radiation, now and in the future.
Research funding in the field of nuclear non-proliferation
The Swedish Radiation Safety Authority is tasked with supporting and initiating research within the Authority’s areas of operation. This assignment encompasses the field of nuclear non-proliferation, including safeguards, export control and illicit trafficking in nuclear materials and radioactive substances. The Authority is hereby pleased to announce availability of research funding in this field. The planned funding totals SEK 1,000,000 (roughly EUR 99,000) allocated over a period of two years, mid-2017 to mid-2019.
SSM's consultation response to the land and environmental court: SKB has the potential to fulfil repository safety requirements
The Swedish Radiation Safety Authority has assessed that the Swedish Nuclear Fuel and Waste Management Company (SKB) has the potential to comply with the Authority’s nuclear safety and radiation protection requirements for the final disposal of spent nuclear fuel. Consequently, the Authority recommends in its statement of findings to the land and environmental court that the repository system should be deemed a permissible activity according to the Swedish Environmental Code.
The IAEA’s review: Solid Swedish system for nuclear safety and radiation protection
The Swedish system for nuclear safety and radiation protection is solid and continues to show good progress. This is the conclusion from the follow-up review presented by a team of experts from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to the Swedish Government and Swedish Radiation Safety Authority. International experts on nuclear safety and radiation protection have performed a weeklong follow-up of the Authority’s work since the IRRS (Integrated Regulatory Review Service) review mission that took place in 2012.
