4.7.3 Operator's Internal Emergency Plans
Internal emergency plans and related documents have been developed so as to secure protection and preparation of employees for significant leaks of radioactive substances into the working environment and surrounding areas and for events which will require taking measures to protect the health of individuals within the nuclear installation area and those in the vicinity..
Internal emergency plan defines:
- classification system of events for assessment,
- organization structure of response to emergencies and the respective responsibilities,
- system of notification and warning of the public and NI staff,
- protective measures and methods of their implementation,
- health care measures plan,
- reconstruction principles,
- cooperating external organizations and bodies,
- system of training of staff and emergency response organization members,

The purpose is to plan and prepare organization, personnel and material and technical means and measures to successfully manage crisis and emergency situations according to the classified event; the following units are involved:

- Operation Support Center (OSC) is a part of AMC, and its activities are focused on staff protection, assessment of the radiation status, forecasting of the development, preparation and implementation of measures to be taken within the nuclear installation area.
- External Evaluation Center located outside of the nuclear installation area; it is responsible for radiation monitoring and estimates of doses around NPP, as well as for the preparation of first recommendations with respect to the public protection.
Information flows start as soon as an operation-related event occurs. The information provided to ÚJD, Slovak Energy Dispatching (SED) and subsequently also to SE a.s.'s Emergency Service.
Information on emergency situations is provided to Supervisory Authorities (ÚJD SR, ŠZÚ), SE a.s. Directorate, Slovak Radiation Monitoring Network Headquarters (SÚRMS) and emergency commissions at the regional level (district and region).
