The purpose of the monitoring  of radioactivity in drinking water is to determine the level of radioactivity in drinking water (Bq / L) and to provide the representativeness of the measured activity concentrations of radionuclide in water for

  • Providing the quality of drinking water
  • Determining the indicative dose

Pravilniki in uredbe (MZ - URSVS), ki urejajo monitoring radioaktivnosti v pitni vodi:

For more than 30 years, JSI has been providing reliable results of measurements of radioactivity in drinking water with various analytical methods that are properly validated and / or accredited. In cooperation with other stakeholders, it provides expert interpretation of data, it can offer additional training and it can provide sampling equipment.
