- It is a commitment of IRE and IRE ELiT's General Management and Supervisory Boards to regard the safety, security and environmental policy as a fundamental and key element of the organisation of these two companies. The future of these two companies can only be developed on the basis of a well-established safety and security culture.
- It is therefore the General Management, with the agreement of their Supervisory Boards and, according to discipline, on the advice or decision of the Safety Department (where prevention advisors, certified physical control experts and physical protection delegates are employed), that defines the security, safety and environmental policy by translating it into the U.T.E Quality Management System.
Gaseous radioactive substances
IRE and IRE ELiT operate their facilities in such a way as to minimise the emission of radioactive substances. In order to do this, IRE and IRE ELiT aim to minimise, at the operational level, the generation of gaseous radioactive effluents at source. IRE and IRE ELiT have also put treatment and filtration facilities for gaseous radioactive effluents into operation for use in routine and/or accident situations. The functioning and efficiency of these installations are measured continuously so as to further reduce the environmental impact when gaseous radioactive substances are generated. The potential release of radioactive substance into the environment is measured continuously and recorded by IRE monitoring systems. These systems also enable the detection of any anomaly that could lead to the release of a radioactive substance into the environment.
