The Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority, Finland (STUK) launched its new website on 27 August 2015. The Stuk.fi online service was given a new look and feel, structure and technical platform.

The appearance and site structure of the Stuk.fi online service has been redesigned. One of the aims of the redesigned site is to serve different user groups better. Particular attention has been paid to enabling different user groups to find information according to their needs.

The site has been designed so that it can be accessed with different devices: desktop computers, smartphones and tablets.

The starting point for both the visual and the user interface design was the level AA of the WCAG 2.0 accessibility guidelines.

The redesigning of the website was carried out as part of the joint project of the administrative branch of the Ministry of Social Affairs and Health, in which STUK, Valvira (National Authority for Welfare and Health), occupational health and safety administration and the Finnish Medicines Agency (Fimea), in cooperation with the ministry, have built a common technical platform for their websites. Valvira.fi was the first website published on this platform. The Liferay platform is supplied by Arcusys Ltd.

Radiation measurement data online

The redesign also involved the development of the radiation measurement application user interfaces. The Today’s dose rates page contains up-to-date measurement data from Finland’s nationwide automatic radiation monitoring network. Information is available retrospectively from the beginning of 2010. STUK monitors the concentrations of radioactive materials in outdoor air in eight different locations in Finland. The monitoring stations’ observations of different radioactive materials are published on STUK’s website.

Radioactive materials in outdoor air

STUK also publishes in its online service other measurement data belonging to STUK’s radiation monitoring programme. However, the goal is that before long all radiation monitoring data will be published in a machine-readable format. STUK is currently carrying out an open data project in cooperation with the Finnish Meteorological Institute. The project will build a service which meets the requirements of the INSPIRE Directive and through which STUK offers, in a machine-readable format, measurement data from the external radiation monitoring network with 10-minute temporal resolution as well as measurement data from outdoor air radioactivity monitoring. The service will come into use from the beginning of 2016.

STUK’s website addresses change

Along with the redesign of STUK’s website, the website address structure has also changed. The most popular pages feature redirection to the new online service. If your online service contains links to STUK’s website, it is a good idea to check that the links are still functioning.

Feedback

We welcome all feedback on STUK’s redesigned online service. We are also happy to receive development suggestions that we will realise as far as possible. Send feedback using the online form.
