Emergency zoning around nuclear power plants in Slovakia
This paper presents summary information on emergency preparedness and planning in Slovakia. Safety policy, current and possible future requirements to the emergency on-site plans, off-site plans and emergency transport orders, as well as to the documentation, their regular updating and review are summarised. National emergency preparedness organisation, zones used, and special and technical facilities are briefly described. PSA requirements, applications and interface between deterministic and probabilistic analyses in support of emergency planning are given. A legislative background and the approach to the determination of Emergency Planning Zones (EPZs) around the nuclear facilities are provided. Trends and future plans for redefinition of emergency zones are outlined.
