Article 35 - Verification issues

Commission verification of facilities in Member States which carry out continuous monitoring of levels of radioactivity in air, water and soil.

Article 35 of the Euratom Treaty stipulates that "Each Member State shall establish the facilities necessary to carry out continuous monitoring of the level of radioactivity in the air, water and soil, and to ensure compliance with the basic standards.". This article also asserts that "The Commission shall have the right of access to such facilities; it may verify their operation and efficiency." The modalities of such verifications have been defined in a Commission Communication OJ C-155 of 04/07/2006, page 2.
