Georgia, Tbilisi, May 5 / Trend N.Kirtzkhalia /
The Georgian Environment Ministry's radiation security experts conducted the first mass radiation control inspection of cars imported from Japan into Georgia. The most up-to-date equipment was used for the inspection.
Following the anthropogenic disaster that occurred in Japan, the community widely believed that the radiation in cars imported from Japan to Georgia would have increased.
"This was one more additional inspection considering the public interests. We have checked the level of air pollution, gamma radiation and the radiation background, which are within the norm and are harmless for human health", the Head of the Georgian Department of Environment Pollution Monitoring Marina Arabidze said.
Georgia is a center-point from where cars are supplied to countries in the region. The main point from which exported cars are brought to Georgia is Japan. At this stage, there has not been a single registered car with increased background radiation.
