About ReGuard and the NEA (Nuclear Energy Act) file

What is a NEA file?
Without proper recordkeeping, the quality system for radiation protection cannot be maintained. In accordance with Article 120 of the Radiation Protection Decree, there must be an administrative management system in which all relevant data relating to radiation protection is recorded: the NEA file. This system must be clear, comprehensive and transferable.

Am I obliged to maintain a NEA file?
If you work with radiation, you must keep a NEA file. The Inspectorate checks explicitly for the presence and completeness of your NEA file.

What is ReGuard?
ReGuard is an online digital NEA file. ReGuard provides you with completeness, certainty and convenience.

By purchasing ReGuard, have I then complied with my obligation pursuant to the Nuclear Energy Act to maintain an administrative management system?

NRG completes your digital NEA file in as much detail as possible based on the information you provide when ordering. Where information is missing, you will be alerted via warnings on the dashboard. The contents of the NEA file remain your responsibility, but ReGuard will provide optimal support.
