What’s the goal?

To improve specific field activities conducted by specialized Police structures immediately after an event implying chemical-biological-radiological-nuclear-high yield explosives (CBRNe).

 What’s the budget?

5,999,095.98 euro, out of which 5,099,231.59 euro ERDF

Target at the half of the implementation period: 10,131 euro for National Research-Development Institute for Materials Physics – NIMP, Romania and 3,521 euro for Ministry of Interior (MoI), Bulgaria

Who is doing it?

Lead beneficiary (LB): National Research-Development Institute for Materials Physics – NIMP (Romania)

Beneficiary 2 (B2): General Inspectorate of Romanian Police (Romania)

Beneficiary 3 (B3): Ministry of Interior (Bulgaria)

 When is it happening?

Start date: 30.12.2016

 Where is it happening?

Mehedinti, Calafat, Dolj, Olt in Romania

Montana, Vidin, Vraca in Bulgaria

 How is it going to happen?                      

  • Providing identical mobile equipment to CBRNe police intervention units from both border sides for detection of hazardous materials
  • Providing means for rapid deployment and efficient containment
  • Providing interoperability at all levels between CBRNe response units from both sides of the border
  • Initiating the establishment of RENFLAB, a regional environmental forensic laboratory to act as certifying analytical support body for the region
  • Providing equipment for NIMP laboratory
  • Information and publicity activities – press conferences, media events, website development

 What will be the results (what’s the contribution to the Programme)?

Programme outputs: 1 joint partnership in the field of joint early warning and emergency response

Programme results: raising the quality of response and recovery in case of CBRNe events in the CBC area

 Project status (reflected in progress reports)

CBRNe mobile units for the Romanian and Bulgarian special intervention teams were procured via a single procurement procedure organized by the LB and the equipment was delivered, installed and commissioned at B2 and B3 and the staff was trained in operation of equipment in May 2018. A NIMP laboratory (composed of Particle Size Analyzer and Supply of XRF Spectrometer was also procured by the Lead Beneficiary.

Steering Committee meetings were held on 12.05.2017 and 26-27.09.2017. Project kick-off was organized on 12.05.2017 and closure 27.06.2018, with participation of all partners.
