History to the Present Day
Radonova, formerly named Landauer Nordic and Gammadata Mätteknik, was founded in 1986 in connection with the Chernobyl accident, when a group of researchers at Uppsala University were commissioned by Sweden’s government to measure radioactive fallout inside and outside Sweden. Radonova has been measuring radon on a large scale since 1989 and has built a strong reputation for its quality and professional approach to the subject of radon gas exposure linked to health risks.
Radonova has been chosen to supply and analyse radon detectors for Public Health England (PHE) making LDRN the most often requested radon detector system in the UK.
Radonova maintains a high profile in the UK and NI being an active member of several internationally recognised radon institutions where best practice and subject knowledge are exchanged.
We are for example members of the UK Radon Council
Formed in 1990, The Radon Council is the Independent non-profit making self-regulatory body for the radon protection industry.
Its formation was welcomed in the Interim Report of the UK Parliamentary Select Committee on Indoor Pollution, which called upon industry to provide a solution to the radon problem. The first objectives were to identify the “cowboy” operators and dubious training courses then in practice. Later there followed a first edition of a training manual (now in its third edition) and an agreed Code of Practice for the industry. The Council has now drawn up an Approved List of Contractors offering advice and services involving remedial work for radon gas.
Radonova is also a member of the UK Radon Association
The UK Radon Association is a not-for-profit, professional organisation of members who are dedicated to the highest standard of excellence and ethical performance of radon measurement, radon mitigation and transfer of radon information for the benefit of members, consumers and the wider public. Our Members include specialist radon contractors, radon testing laboratories and suppliers of radon mitigation equipment.
In Europe we belong to the European Radon Association (ERA).
There is a large and growing community in Europe of professionals such as scientists, technologists, public health officials and decision makers working in the radon field. Their areas of interest range from epidemiology, radiation dosimetry, instrument development and measurement protocols, remediation and prevention construction technologies to control strategies and regulation.
In recognition of this the European Radon Association (ERA) has been formed aimed at serving the interests of the European radon community and to assist in reducing the health burden of Radon Exposure in Europe.
