Short description: The Part IIA regime for managing contaminated land has been extended to include radioactive contamination. The new arrangements are described in. These only apply to sites that require remedial action to reduce or avert chronic radiation exposures (‘intervention’ situations). The Radioactively Contaminated Land Exposure Assessment (RCLEA) methodology is Defra’s recommended approach for the initial risk assessment of a site under the new regime. It is founded on the Contaminated Land Exposure Assessment (CLEA) approach which was developed for the assessment of non-radioactive contamination and introduced in 2002. RCLEA is not intended to be applied to nuclear licensed sites or sites that are changing land use. Other methodologies have been published for the assessment of these sites.
