Simulations for estimating the neutron and γ-rays radiation background in the forthcoming NUMEN experiments at the upgraded MAGNEX facility were performed with the simulation package FLUKA. Three main radiation sources were considered in our simulations namely, the beam-target interaction, the moderation of the beam particles inside the beam dump and a hypothetical 10W loss in the beam intensity during the beam transport. In the present contribution, the results of this preliminary analysis are presented and discussed.
