LAW OF TURKMENISTAN

of August 15, 2009 No. 56-IV

About radiation safety

(as amended of the Law of Turkmenistan of 29.08.2013)

This Law determines the legal basis of ensuring radiation safety of the population and the environment.

Chapter I. General provisions

Article 1. Radiation safety of the population

Radiation safety of the population (further - radiation safety) - condition of security of health and life of people and future generations, and also the environment from harmful effects on them of ionizing radiation.

For the purpose of this Law the following basic concepts are applied:

1) ionizing radiation - the radiation which is created in case of radioactive decay nuclear transformations, braking of charged particles in substance and forms in case of interaction with environment ions of different signs;

2) natural radiation background - the radiation dose created by the space radiation and radiation of the natural radionuclides which are naturally distributed in the earth, water, air, other elements of the biosphere, and also in foodstuff and human body;

3) tekhnogenno the changed radiation background - the natural radiation background which underwent to change in result of activities of the person;

4) users of sources of ionizing radiation (daleepolzovatel) - the legal entities and physical persons extracting, making, developing, overworking, using, storing, servicing, transporting, neutralizing sources of ionizing radiation and performing their burial;

7) radiation accident - the loss of management of source of ionizing radiation caused by defect of the equipment, actions (failure to act) of workers (personnel), natural disasters or other reasons which could give or led to radiation of people above of the established regulations or to radioactive environmental pollution;

8) radiation protection - set of the sanitary and hygienic, design, technical and organizational actions aimed at providing radiation safety;

9) radiation monitoring - systematic observations of condition of radiation situation as on subjects to use of sources of ionizing radiation, and in the environment.

Article 4. Principles of ensuring radiation safety

The basic principles of ensuring radiation safety are:

1) the principle of regulation - not exceeding of admissible limits of individual doses of radiation of people from all sources of ionizing radiation;

2) the principle of reasons - prohibition of all types of activity on use of sources of ionizing radiation in case of which the advantage received for the person and society does not exceed risk of the possible harm done by radiation, additional to natural radiation background;

3) the principle of optimization - maintenance taking into account economic and social factors at perhaps low and achievable level of individual doses of radiation and number of the irradiated persons when using any source of ionizing radiation;

4) the principle of emergency optimization - the taken measures in emergencies which shall be optimized so that they brought more benefit, than harm.
