Information



paragraph 1 of the Swedish radiation safety authority is the managing authority for the

questions about the protection of human health and the environment against harmful

effect of ionizing and non-ionizing radiation, questions

If the safety and security of nuclear and other

activities involving radiation and nuclear non-

spread.



The authority will be a driving force for a good radiation safety in

society and in its operations work to



1. Prevention of radiological accidents and ensure radiation safe

operation and waste management in the nuclear activities,



2. minimize the risks associated with and optimize effects of radiation

for medical purposes,



3. minimize the risks of radiation used in products

and services or which arise as a by-product of

use of products and services,



4. minimize the risks associated with exposure to naturally occurring

radiation, and



5. improve radiation safety internationally.
