The Fukushima accident has demonstrated the possibility of long-lasting releases of radionuclides from a nuclear power plant over several weeks. Within the framework of the “PREPARE” research project one work package focused on testing emergency preparedness arrangements in various countries for the special case of long lasting emissions. The aim of this study was to test whether protection strategies included in current nuclear emergency planning in various European countries could adequately reduce the radiological consequences of Nuclear Power Plant accidents with long lasting severe releases. This paper presents an overview and the conclusions of this study, more details of the work can be found in the following articles.
Key words: radiological consequence assessment / severe accident scenario / long lasting release
