The Norwegian Radiation Protection Authority (NRPA) and the IRSN organized an international conference co-sponsored by WHO by on the prevention of radon risk in homes, on Thursday 11 & Friday, April 12 in Paris.
On this occasion, the speakers from eight countries (United Kingdom, Ireland, Finland, Canada, Switzerland, Germany, Norway and France) presented their actions to reduce exposure to radon in the home. Several presentations highlighted the experience of local actors (NGO’s, elected officials, building professionals) in the effective implementation of national policies in their territory. These two days have allowed 150 participants from different backgrounds (civil society, government or technicians) to share best practices of each country and the challenges to improve the prevention of radon risk in the future. A video of the conference will soon be posted on IRSN website.
We would like to thank all the speakers and participants at our conference.
