Welcome to the homepage of the association of the Heads of European Radiological protection Competent Authorities.

HERCA is a voluntary association in which the Heads of Radiation Protection Authorities work together in order to identify common issues and propose practical solutions for these issues. HERCA is working on topics generally covered by provisions of the EURATOM Treaty. The programme of work of HERCA is based on common interest in significant regulatory issues.

The goal of HERCA is to contribute to a high level of radiological protection throughout Europe. In order to achieve this goal, the association will:

  • Build and maintain a European network of chief radiation protection regulatory authorities, with the definite wish to involve ALL such regulatory authorities, throughout Europe
  • Promote the exchange of ideas and experiences, avoiding unnecessary duplication of work and learning from one anotherís best practices
  • Develop a common approach to radiation protection and the way it is transposed into regulation
  • Discuss and, where appropriate, express its consensus opinion on significant regulatory issues.

The uniqueness of HERCA, as compared to other existing networks in radiation protection, is that it is composed of the Heads of the Authorities, persons who either have decision capacity or can at least have a major influence on policy and decisions within their country.

New European Approach for cross-border Emergency Preparedness

2014-11-24 The heads of the national nuclear and radiation safety regulators in Europe have developed and agreed on a new approach to further improve the response and cross-border coordination for all types of possible accident scenarios including severe accidents, like the one in Fukushima. It contains overarching principles and provides an incentive for joint actions between neighbouring countries.
