Sanitary protective zones of NPPS, radiation and hygienic requirements for their assignment

The article analyzes the requirements of legislative and regulatory documents of Ukraine regarding purposes of san- itary protective zones of nuclear power plants (NPP), radiation and hygienic principles for substantiation of their sizes. Problems of application of requirements to establish the sizes of sanitary protective zones of NPPs arising from their emergency purposes are discussed. The proposals for changes in legislative and regulatory documents of Ukraine are given. Their implementation will not only solve the problem of zoning around NPPs and other radia- tion and nuclear facilities, but also to harmonize the legislation of Ukraine with the regulatory requirements of the European Union.
Key words: sanitary protective zone, NPP, design basis accident, emergency release.
