C&S Compendium Preface

At a workshop held in Salamanca in 1992, by the ESARDA Working Group on Containment and Surveillance, it was concluded that the development of containment and surveillance (C/S) devices had now reached a stage where products or basic expertise were available to assist with the solution of many problems.  It was felt that a compilation, which contained outline information on a range of C/S products would help the potential user to know where to obtain further information and, thus, to judge whether a particular device might meet the requirements of a specific application.

The Compendium also complies with the ‘ESARDA Strategic Planning’ initialised in 1998.

This compendium is not intended to be comprehensive but collects together contributions provided by the members of the Working Group.
