The 24.804 Act, “The National Law On Nuclear Activities”, establishes that the Nuclear

Regulatory Authority (ARN) shall be responsible for regulating and controlling nuclear

activities. It also settles ARN functions related to preparedness and response to nuclear and radiological emergencies. In particular, ARN is responsible for managing and co-ordinating the response in case of a nuclear emergency. Since 2003, ARN´s Emergency Control Center (CCE) has a geographic information system applied to nuclear and radiological emergency preparedness and response. This system results very useful for representing and analyzing emergency scenes, efficient resources performance

and counseling the decision makers about protection actions. The GIS is composed of a database with geographical information such as social, economic, physical and environmental data and incorporates results for forecasting models and measurements of environmental impact during the emergency. This enables the analysis of data in real time and facilitates decision-making. In addition, forecasting radiological consequences evaluation models used by CCE are compatible with GIS. Finally, it highlights the importance of integration forecasting radiological consequences evaluation models with GIS in the different emergency stages. In response preparedness stage (before the accident), and during the emergency, as well GIS as the models resuls must be

indispensably supplemented with field monitoring data. This integration is also useful for post-emergency stage to verify that the measures addopted in an early stage were
