Nuclear safety

STUK supervises nuclear safety in Finland. The license holder is responsible for the safety of nuclear energy use, but STUK sets the safety requirements and oversees their compliance. STUK's supervision includes nuclear facilities, nuclear materials and nuclear waste.

Current issues

The Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority in Finland coordinates the 22NRM01 TraMeXI (Traceability in medical X-ray imaging dosimetry) project supported by the European Union. The aim of the project is to update existing and develop new calibration and measurement methods to ensure the reliability of patients' radiation exposure measurements.

The training for experts in the use of the equipment and materials of the EU’s common emergency stockpile facilities located in Finland starts at the Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority. After the training of the first group, the materials and experts are ready to go within at least two days after the request for help has been received.
