Abstract : Requirements of the All-State Radiation Monitoring Network in the Czech Republic have been established by Regulation No. 319/2002 Sb, and its function and organisation are described in Regulation No. 27/2006 Sb. The All-State Radiation Monitoring Network in the Czech Republic consists of two components–permanent monitoring and emergency monitoring. The activity of the whole network is provided by the State Office for Nuclear Safety. The selected central authorities of the state administration participate in operation and providing particular components. There are two different modes of the operation of these components–normal and emergency. The modes of operation are controlled by the State Office for Nuclear Safety.
