The UK Radon Symposium

The UK Radon Symposium is being held on 23rd March 2023 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Reading. This biennial event is hosted by the UK Radon Association and brings together both public and private sector organisations to share the latest news, views and regulatory information relating to the control of radon gas in indoor environments. With revised radon potential maps having been released in December 2022, we are delighted to have speakers from both the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) and BRE talking about the implications of the new maps for existing buildings and new developments. The Principal Specialist Inspector for Radiation at the Health & Safety Executive will also be speaking about HSE’s campaign to tackle non-compliance in schools and the regulator’s current policies in dealing with radon in the workplace. This year, the International Radon Measurement Association is also running a half-day workshop focusing on radon testing for workplaces the preceding day including ideas of creating a new protocol for the UK on this. 
 
There will also be a networking event in the evening of the 22nd. Tickets are available from <www.ukradonsymposium.com>, where you can also view the full programme.
