Abstract

A growth in significance and volume of measures to assure radiation safety (RS) in the Navy is due to a number of reasons:
  • more stringent requirements of the Russian public and the international community for cleanliness and protection of the environment;

  • the necessity of additional measures to provide radiation safety at all the stages of nuclear submarine (NS) recycling, including that of interim storage of decommissioned submarines and reactor compartments;

  • the availability of a considerable amount of liquid and solid radioactive waste (LRW and SRW) posing a real ecological risk to personnel, population, and the environment;

  • lack of financial support for development of methods of radiation, chemical, and biological protection, and construction and repair of specialized structures to provide for radiation safety.
