Abstract

An international Iodine workshop co-organized by the French "Institut de Radioprotection et de Sûreté Nucléaire", the Nuclear Energy Agency of the OECD, the Technical Area 2 "SARNET" of NUGENIA and the European Commission through the Joint Research Centre (Petten) was held in Marseille (France) from March 30 to April 1, 2015. The scope and objectives of the workshop were to: " review and discuss the outcomes of recently concluded and on-going national and international research programmes related to iodine and ruthenium behaviour during Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) accidents including Design Basis Accident (DBA) and Beyond Design Basis Accident (BDBA); " review and discuss the associated progress made in related modelling in NPP accidents; " review and discuss the implications for source term evaluations and assessment of accident management measures (for radiological impact reduction through, e.g., Filtered Containment Venting System (FCVS) implementation); " identify safety-significant issues in the field not yet sufficiently covered that would induce gaps or potential weaknesses in accident analysis and assessment of accident management measures, including for the long-term phases of an accident; " share source-term evaluation results and related uncertainties assessments; " contribute to the dissemination of knowledge gained in the field and promote the best use of knowledge updates for accident analysis and management. The present paper summarizes the main conclusions and recommendations of the workshop regarding source term research and its implementation in tools supporting accident analysis and management including emergency response.
