Emergency Preparedness Review Services - EPREV
Under the Convention on Assistance in the Case of a Nuclear Accident or Radiological Emergency, the Agency’s functions include:
- Preparing both emergency plans in the case of nuclear accidents and radiological emergencies and the appropriate legislation
- Developing appropriate training programmes for personnel to deal with nuclear accidents and radiological emergencies
- Developing appropriate radiation monitoring programmes, procedures and standards
- Cconducting investigations into the feasibility of establishing appropriate radiation monitoring systems
The IAEA fulfills these functions in part through its Emergency Preparedness Review (EPREV) Service. EPREV is a service provided by the IEC to appraise preparedness for nuclear and/or radiological emergencies in Member States.
Various types of missions are available within the EPREV programme. The scope and depth are decided during discussions between the requesting Member State and the IAEA.
EPREVs can cover all aspects from the appraisal of the emergency preparedness arrangements at a specific installation to a full appraisal of all arrangements in a requesting Member State, including on-site, off-site and national arrangements
