Contaminated Land Industry Profiles - RS01009

Description
This is phase one of a two stage project to produce industry profiles for operations using radioactive material. These are be equivalent to existing profiles in the Department of the Environment (DOE) Industry Profile series (1995) which provide advice on how best to identify, assess and tackle the problems of land contamination. This will focus on land outside nuclear licensed sites and will include some former and existing Ministry of Defence land. This first stage aims to produce recommendations for a series of Industry Profiles or of a single all-embracing Industry Profile, together with synopses of each proposed document. It is likely that a subsequent second stage will be undertaken with the aim of producing the Industry Profile(s) in the chosen form.
