Radioactivity in food and the environment-Annual report published

Radioactivity in Food and the Environment (RIFE) improves our understanding of the impact of radioactivity on the environment. It provides an in-depth assessment of radioactivity in food and the environment in the UK and the public’s exposure to radiation.

The report, published this week, brings together the results of monitoring of radioactivity near nuclear sites during 2022. Overall, around 10,000 analyses and dose rate measurements were completed in 2022.

The data from the monitoring programme in this report demonstrates that radioactivity in food and the environment is safe.The dose received by the public near to nuclear licensed sites and industrial and landfill sites in the UK is low and again well within legal limits.Radioactivity from natural background, rather than nuclear sites, continues to be the more significant source of exposure to communities in all areas of the UK.

The joint report is compiled by the Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science (CEFAS) on behalf of the Environment Agency (EA); Northern Ireland Environment Agency (NIEA); Natural Resources Wales (NRW); Food Standards Agency (FSA); Food Standards Scotland (FSS) and the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA).
