RNSARBOOK: NORDIC HANDBOOK FOR SEARCH AND RESCUE IN A MARITIME RADIOLOGICAL/NUCLEAR EMERGENCY

NKS-B Research Area Emergency Preparedness
Project summary

In RNSARBOOK, national RAD-authorities and SAR-authorities from Nordic countries will cooperate to develop a handbook for search and rescue (SAR) in maritime radiological/nuclear (RN) emergencies. The handbook aims to propose harmonized guidelines and recommended procedures for the handling of maritime RN-emergencies by dedicated SAR agencies in maritime incidents involving radioactive and/or nuclear material. The developed guidelines and procedures will enhance the emergency preparedness for international rescue operations in a maritime RN-scenario, clarify the processes and roles, and provide further understanding of RN and its terminology. It will also offer an opportunity to harmonize the advice given by the national radiation authorities to the national rescue coordination centres (RCCs) between the Nordic countries. The project will use existing international procedures, official materials from national authorities, incorporate findings from previous and ongoing NKS B and Arctic Council EPPR projects and other international projects, and build on previous experience from the development of the ChemSAR Handbook. The handbook will be based on international IAEA standards and guidelines, the Nordic guidelines and the IAMSAR manual.
