Abstrakt

The effects of the radon provisions implemented by the National Building Regulations on radon levels in homes are positive according to a survey conducted after implementing the radon provisions following council directive 2013/59/EURATOM and the recommendations by the World Health Organization. The survey presents the indoor-air radon concentration in detached and terraced single-family homes. The radon concentration was measured in 3,762 individual homes (which were completed between 1900 and 2018) during the heating season during the winters of 2015–2016, 2016–2017, and 2017–2018. Statistical calculations of the measures are the basis for the evaluation of how radon provisions, implemented as requirements in the National Building Regulations, affect the radon concentration in indoor air. The national reference level is 100 Bq/m3, which is determined as the estimated annual mean value.
