The IAEA MEREIA Programme, established in 2021 will run until 2025, following in the steps of other IAEA programmes in environmental modelling and dose assessment, such as VAMP , BIOMASS,
EMRAS I and
MODARIA I and
II. Over the years these programmes have been providing international points of reference for radiological environmental impact assessment (REIA) and have built consensus under the umbrella of the
IAEA Safety Standards, in order to achieve the highest level of safety for people and the environment from the harmful impact of ionizing radiation.
