32-95 METODOLOGIA DE DETERMINARE PASIVĂ A CONCENTRAȚIILOR DE RADON ÎN AERUL DIN INTERIORUL CLĂDIRILOR
THE METHODOLOGY TO PASSIVE MONITORING OF INDOOR RADON IN BUILDINGS
Radon inside buildings represents the main source of human exposure to ionizing radiation in the world. Studies in many countries have shown that high levels of indoor radon increases the risk of lung cancer. This article present the method selected by the competence European authorities as the most suitable to complete the map of indoor radon concentration in buildings. The 59/2013 EURATOM Directive recommends to all European member countries to implement their legislation in order to protect the population from radon since 2018. The recommended method for measuring the annual concentration of radon in buildings is based on passive monitoring of radon levels by CR-39 radon detectors.
