Distribution of iodine tablets to the public, workplaces and public facilities in 2023/24

Apr 30, 2024

The campaign to redistribute iodine tablets (potassium iodide 65 SERB tablets) as a precautionary measure to the public, workplaces, and public facilities took place in 2023/24. It covered the areas within a 50km radius of the active Swiss nuclear power plants (Beznau 1, Beznau 2, Gösgen and Leibstadt). Iodine tablets were distributed to the public in the autumn of 2023 and to workplaces and public facilities the following spring.  

In regions outside of this 50 km radius, the cantons ensure appropriate storage of enough iodine tablets to supply the whole population in the event of an incident.
