EURADOS Training Course on Radiation Protection Dosimetry and Accreditation of IMS

Accreditation of IMS A Training Course on Radiation Protection Dosimetry and Accreditation of IMS: Secrets & Solutions


The course aims to support the implementation of the European Commission’s ‘Technical Recommendations for Monitoring Individuals Occupationally Exposed to External Radiation’ (Radiation Protection 160, RP160). The training course will be held at IST in Bobadela (close to Lisbon, Portugal) on 3 - 7 October 2022, during the week before the ERPW conference. The course is organised by the EURADOS WG02 on ‘Harmonisation of Individual Monitoring’ in Europe, a partner of EURAMET’s European Metrology Network for Radiation Protection.

This well-established education and training event is supported by PTB, Germany’s National Metrology Institute. Oliver Hupe from PTB has carried out the general organisation of the event, with support from the program committee (consisting of the following members: Francesco Rossi, AOU Careggi, Italy; Nicky Gibbens and Phil Gilvin, UKHSA, United Kingdom; and the local organizer, Joao Alves from IST in Bobadela, Portugal).

Course content

All aspects of individual monitoring as discussed in the RP160 will be addressed during the course, with an emphasis on metrology, quality assurance and type testing. Recent developments will also be covered, including changes that have resulted from the new version of ISO/IEC 17025:2017, the impact of the EU Directive 2013/59/Euratom, and the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Intended audience
The course is intended for all stakeholders who are involved in the individual monitoring of external radiation. However, it will be particularly useful for junior or trainee managers of individual monitoring services.
