Radiological monitoring of the environment was carried out in all regions of Kazakhstan
Во всех регионах Казахстана проведен радиологический  мониторинг окружающей среды 23.08.2019

The “National Center of Expertise” KKKBTU of the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Kazakhstan, as part of a state order throughout the republic, monitors the state of the gamma background in the environment.

In order to protect public health from radiation factors, the radiological laboratories of the National Center for Expertise daily monitor the dose rate of gamma radiation in the environment.

So, according to the data as of August 22, 2019, the background radiation in the environment remains stable, no excesses in the natural gamma background, and also no radioactive contamination in samples of atmospheric air and precipitation, the level of gamma radiation dose rate is within 0.05-0, 19 microsievert per hour (μSv / h). The norm of ionizing radiation is - 0.30 μSv / h.

Monitoring of radioactive contamination of the surface layer of the atmosphere is carried out by taking air samples to determine the total beta activity, collecting precipitation and settling dust on the filters, as well as measuring the exposure rate of gamma radiation.

This monitoring is carried out in cities of republican significance, 14 regional, 25 city, 157 regional branches of the National Center for Expertise.
