Title: Assessment of radioactive discharge screening levels for biota protected under the habitats regulations : April 2002
Author: Environment Agency National Compliance Assessment Service
Document Type: Monograph
This report presents the results of radiological assessments performed to determine screening discharge levels wildlife screening levels (TBq/y) for biota protected under the Habitats Regulations in designated Natura 2000 sites, for discharge of radioactivity to atmosphere, river and the coastal marine environment. The purpose of these generalised wildlife screening levels is to enable identification of those discharge authorisations which have the potential to lead to a significant adverse effect on populations of wildlife. For Natura 2000 sites which could be affected by these authorised discharges it is expected that a more detailed site specific radiological assessment for wildlife will be required.
