Summary

Some industrial activities such as ceramic production, coal combustion in power plants or mining and ore processing for the production of metals (tin, aluminium, ...) involve the use of materials, usually regarded as non-radioactive but which contain naturally occurring radionuclides (NORM). Working with these raw materials or storing them can lead to a significant increase in the exposure of workers and members of the public. According to the council Directive 96/29 Euratom, this matter must be considered from the radiological protection point of view. The French approach and the first feedback are presented hereafter.
