Abstract

This Good Practice Guide has been written by the UK Ionising Radiation Metrology Forum in collaboration with the radiation user community. It describes recommended procedures for the examination, testing and calibration of installed radiation protection instruments. Test procedures recommended in this document are not legally binding: they are general methods based on current accepted good practice.
The current statutory requirements for installed radiation protection instruments tests is stated in the Ionising Radiations Regulations 1999. All employers who work with ionising radiation must ensure that levels are adequately monitored and instruments are suitable for this purpose.
Although the test regimes presented here are for general applications, qualified persons responsible for the calibration of radiation protection instruments may modify them, with the agreement of the Radiation Protection Adviser, as necessary to suit their particular purpose, provided that the employer is satisfied that the overall quality of the testing is not compromised.
