Harmonizing Guidance to Assess Radioactivity in Food and Drinking Water

Proposals to harmonize guidance on radioactivity in food and drinking water in non-emergency situations have reached a milestone with the development of a document based on international consensus on the topic. The draft of this document was discussed by experts from over 60 countries at a meeting of the IAEA's Radiation Safety Standards Committee (RASSC) last month.
