Abstract

This paper is concerned with aspects of organization and procedure in nuclear accident management. Because all accidents can be argued to have common characteristics, a comparative approach is taken here for the discussion of emergency planning for nuclear accidents. This approach reveals several deficiencies in selected European emergency plans, the most important concerning formal and informal communication channels. The most important principle which emerges from this discussion, and which was reinforced by the recent U.S. nuclear accident at Three Mile Island, is that planning efforts should be directed toward reducing the information Load carried by each person involved in managing an accident
