The Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) has an ongoing comprehensive monitoring programme for radioactivity in Scotland, and has increased the level of scrutiny to provide ongoing public assurance.
The latest set of 10 results from air samplers in Scotland, cover 4 – 18 April.
Air monitors have continued to show very low concentrations of iodine-131 and other radionuclides. The concentrations are of no concern to human health and all results reported to date are below the levels where regulatory action would be necessary.
SEPA will continue to monitor the environment and will provide the information to the Scottish Government and the public.
Due to the continued and decreasing low concentrations the frequency of reporting will change, initially from weekly to fortnightly. The next set of available results will be published on 5 May.
