Summary

The environmental protection is today a global issue that concerns all the human activities. The question is to be able to prove their compatibility with the protection of the natural environment, but also if required to act to make up for a potential or established risk, generally in the context of ever strict regulations. Regarding the chemical aspects, known standards and methods are available for the assessment of the associated risk for the environment. From the radiological point of view, the necessity to have such tools was recently became more apparent, in order to justify for the public and with a full transparency the release of radioactive substances into the environment, to meet the requirements of the new regulations in terms of environmental protection and finally to harmonize the approaches between human and environmental radioprotection as well as between chemical and radioactive pollutants, simultaneously present for example in routine releases from nuclear power plants. At this end of harmonization, the assessment methodologies of the environmental risk linked to radionuclides or chemical substances are exposed from the theory to their comparative application, a new approach under development from which the first results are summarised.
