Organisational Structure and File Plan

At the Federal Office for Radiation Protection, the organisational structure (Organisational Chart) and the structure of document management (File Plan) are illustrated in organisational plans. The organisational structure of the BfS has been depicted in an organisational chart providing information about the organisational units of the BfS and their allocation of tasks. The BfS takes important decisions in terms of human resources and organisation only with the consent of the Federal Environment Ministry (BMUB). Details have been regulated by the BMUB in a delegation decree.

Principles for the further development of radiation protection

The task of radiation protection is to protect man and environment against the detrimental effects of ionising and non-ionising radiation. The Principles for the Further Development of Radiation Protection have been developed by the Federal Office for Radiation Protection (BfS). In the principles, objectives and perspectives for national radiation protection are formulated on the basis of a summary of current radiation protection fundamentals.

Radioactive waste disposal: Realignment of organisational structure

The changes laid down in the Act on the Organisational Restructuring in the Field of Radioactive Waste Management basically aim to structure the organisations and authorities in a manner that future tasks, such as the search for a site for a repository for high-level radioactive waste, can be implemented successfully. Furthermore, the aim is to improve the organisational structures in existing areas and to ensure a clear allocation of responsibilities and tasks in the field of radiation protection and radioactive waste disposal. The changes that were decided by the German Bundestag in June 2016, are a response to proposals brought up repeatedly in the political debate by Wolfram König, President of the BfS.

Prevention of corruption

Hardly any crime increases the burden on society so much as corruption does. It damages competition, the state and, last but not least, all taxpayers. Each case of bribery undermines people’s confidence in public administration exactly like in business conduct in the economy. Therefore, prevention of corruption rates high in the Federal Office for Radiation Protection.
