2016: Act on the Rearrangement of Organisational Structures in the Field of Radioactive Waste Disposal

In 2016, the Act on the Rearrangement of Organisational Structures in the Field of Radioactive Waste Disposal became effective. Within that context, parts of the staff of the Federal Office for Radiation Protection (BfS) were assigned to new organisations: The Federal Office for the Safety of Nuclear Waste Management (BfE) and Bundesgesellschaft für Endlagerung (BGE).

In March 2018, the new organisational structure of the Federal Office for Radiation Protection became effective. Thus, the necessary prerequisites were established to reorganise the BfS and to strengthen and further develop its profile as competent federal radiation protection authority.

On the occasion of this "restart", this annual report 2017/18 introduces the new organisational structure of the BfS.
