|Title: ||The NORM4Building database, a tool for radiological assessment when using by-products in building materials|
|Authors: ||Schroeyers, Wouter|

|Abstract: ||Scientific data on natural occurring radioactive materials (NORMs) is available in unknown quantities and the data is fragmented over several different sources. The new EU-BSS is regulating the use of NORM in building materials, however a large scale database with country specific information that can support legislators and industry in the assessment of the radiological impact of the use of by-products in construction is missing. Currently the COST Action ‘NORM4BUILDING’ (2014–2017) is creating such a database using a semi-automated datamining approach. In this paper radiological aspects on by-products that can find application in concrete are discussed based on the database.|
