The French national network for environmental radioactivity measurements centralizes all the monitoring data on environmental radioactivity in France and ensures their quality and harmonization through an accreditation procedure. Its website is now available in English.
The national network RNM has been developed under the aegis of the Nuclear Safety Authority ASN, and its daily management has been entrusted to IRSN. Since 2010, it has made accessible to all, with transparency, the 300 000 measurements carried out annually in France in the various compartments of the environment (air, water, soil, fauna and flora) and in foodstuff.
One of the strengths of the RNM lies in manifold information sources: measurements come from the governmental services and its public establishments, from operators of nuclear installations or from other public, private or associative actors.
