OUR LATEST NEWS
We at MMK are proud to say that the International Atomic Energy Agency IAEA has chosen to sign an international training course contract with us.
The first training course takes place week 20 2019 in Uppsala, Sweden. The training course will be held for, by IAEA selected experts in several countries and will give them an in-depth knowledge of the following:
Method for measuring gamma radiation in building materials
Method for measuring gamma radiation in buildings
Method for measuring gamma radiation in soil
Method for measuring dose in room in finished building
Methods for measuring radon in buildings
Methods for measuring radon in soil
Method for the classification of radon-risk in soil
Knowledge about how to carry out preparatory radon measures before and during construction
Method for a correct radon investigation
Methodology for correct dimensioning and execution of radon measures in building after a completed radon investigation
The IAEA has chosen the Technical Manager Tony Löfqvist at MMK as an expert in the drafting of the TECDOC drafting for the UN member states. This work will provide a basis for managing the ionizing radiation problem regarding testing, measurement, investigation and measures against radon and gamma radiation. This work includes both existing and new buildings including how to test rock-based building material. The work began on the 18th-22nd of June 2018 and continues at the IAEA in Vienna on the 13th-16th of November 2018.
Technical Manager Tony Löfqvist at MMK will lecture on testing of building materials at the first ENA Workshop & IAEA NORM Project Technical Meeting in Katowice, Poland, on the 19th-23rd of November 2018.
Technical Manager Tony Löfqvist at MMK represents SIS as Sweden’s radiation expert at the EU-meeting in Paris for the TG31 and TG32 working groups on the 18th-19th of September 2018.
SIS has decided that the work will continue with MMK’s Method MMK A2 605 to become a Swedish Standard for testing building material of natural radiation, for concrete and ballast.
The working group WG3 in Europe will work with MMK’s Method MMK A2 605 so that this method will become an European standard for control of natural radiation in rock-based construction materials such as concrete and ballast.
