In the years 2006 - 2008 the European ALARA Network for Naturally Occurring Radioactive Material (NORM) - EANNORM - was established. This network connects experts and provides experience on the implementation of the ALARA principle into European industry and research. Since 2007 European experts have met at EANNORM workshops to exchange knowledge and experience on all radiation protection issues related to NORM.

At the same time EU-NORM symposia have focused on the same target group of experts.

On September 27th 2017 EANNORM and EU-NORM merged to form the European NORM Association (ENA).

In line with the previous eight EANNORM workshops, the 1st ENA workshop will be organized in November 2018 in Katowice (Poland) in cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency.

Contributions from practitioners, industry operators, authorities, service providers and scientists are expected on selected topics as well as on the transposition process of the Council Directive 2013/59/EURATOM into the European national legislations.
