Executive Summary
One of the first steps of the Nuclear Transparency Watch (NTW) association 
was to establish the working group (WG) on the Emergency Preparedness and 
Response (EP&R) with the aim to carry out an evaluation of the existing 
European and national EP&R provisions from the civil society point of 
view, to inform the public on the findings and to and provide guidance 
for further activities of the interested public.
The information on EP&R provisions in Europe and Ukraine was collected 
and analyses were performed based on a) desk work to review the national 
provisions and international requirements, b) interviews and questionnaires 
with representatives of responsible institutions and members of local 
populations, c) the organisation of trans-boundary roundtables involving 
the participation of responsible institutions and civil society, 
d) international seminars with expert institutions and international 
associations as well as e) the available investigations performed by 
the European institutions (i.e. the “Review of current off-site nuclear 
emergency preparedness and response arrangements in EU member states and 
neighbouring countries“ study). It has to be emphasised that the NTW 
investigations were performed by individuals or associations which did 
not possess or have access to dedicated resources to perform the work 
and also under conditions where they were sometimes obstructed from 
obtaining requested information. Therefore, the results do not claim 
to be comprehensive or homogenous, but provide preliminary information 
on the EP&R provisions as seen from the civil society point of view.
