The Council Directive 2013/59/Euratom regulates radon exposures in dwellings for the first time in the European Union. It establishes that Member States, to address long-term risks from radon exposures in dwellings, buildings with public access and workplaces for any source of radon ingress, shall establish a national action plan considering the issues set out in Annex XVIII. Member States shall increase public awareness about indoor radon risk, the importance of carrying out indoor radon concentration measurements and the availability of radon concentration reduction techniques. In this paper we present preliminary data, collected in the district of Naples (Italy), on the public’s knowledge regarding the risks associated with exposure to radon. The collected data, based on a specifically designed questionnaire, provide some points of reflection both for the optimization of the questionnaire itself, for future surveys, and for the information program for the population.
