7th International Symposium on Naturally Occurring Radioactive Material, Beijing, China 22-26 April 2013

Beijing, China

NORM (Naturally Occurring Radioactive Material) Symposia Series is one of the conferences cooperated by the IAEA and has been organising every three years in the recent past. This conference series had begun from Europe and now moving to other parts of the world for harmonization of radiation protection in industries and work activities related to naturally occurring radioactive materials The first symposium in the series, was held in Amsterdam in 1997. The second in the series (NORM II) was held in 1998 in Krefeld, Germany, the third (NORM III) in Brussels, Belgium in 2001, the fourth (NORM IV) in Szczyrk, Poland, in 2004, the fifth (NORM V) in Seville, Spain, in 2007 and the sixth (NORM VI) in Marrakesh, Morocco in 2010 reflecting the growing interest within regions in the management of exposure to NORM. The close involvement of the IAEA in most of these symposia is reflected in the fact that the proceedings of the Szczyrk symposium has been published as IAEA-TECDOC-1472, while the Seville and Marrakesh symposia were published in the IAEA Proceedings Series. National regulatory bodies, technical and research organizations, industrial organizations from phosphate industry, titanium industry, mining industry (coal, uranium and metal), rare earth industry, metal production industries have been either involved in the past conferences relevant to the topic or possibly be involved in future conferences for coherence and harmonization of radiation protection in the NORM sector. The Seventh International Symposium on NORM will be organised in Beijing, April 22-26, 2013.
