Each Supersite has one or more End-users to whom scientific information concerning the hazards affecting the site is constantly provided and updated. End-users are generally national or local level public administrations.
According to our policies, the only authoritative provider of hazard or monitoring information services to the end-users is the Supersite coordinating agency. Even if the End-users are not directly involved in the GSNL initiative, the services they receive are ruled by national laws or bilateral agreements.
The wider GSNL scientific community can contribute specific scientific information to the End-users, under the supervision of the Supersite coordinator. The latter then selects through an inclusive scientific discussion the information to be officially provided to the End-user.
