Welcome to the new website of the Swedish Radiation Safety Authority!

Government assignment regarding relocation of parts of SSM’s operations
The Government of Sweden has tasked the Swedish Radiation Safety Authority (SSM) with moving parts of SSM’s organisation to the city of Katrineholm. Katrineholm is around 140 kilometres southwest of Stockholm. The Government has also given SSM the assignment of preparing and transferring tasks required under the Financing Act and Ordinance to the Swedish National Debt Office.
Emergency planning zones
A Precautionary Action Zone (PAZ) extending approximately five kilometres, an Urgent Protective Action Planning Zone (UPZ) extending around 25 kilometres, and a supplementary Extended Planning Distance (EPD) of 100 kilometres surrounding Swedish nuclear power plants: these areas were proposed on 1 November by the Swedish Radiation Safety Authority in a report covering a review assignment on emergency planning zones and emergency planning distances in Sweden. This report has been forwarded to the Swedish Government.
