PHE's Instrument Testing Service provides high quality instrument testing service for periodic testing and test before first use of a wide variety of monitors including dose-rate monitors, contamination monitors and active personal dose-meters.
We offer a high quality instrument testing service providing tests in compliance with the Ionising Radiations Regulations and recognised good practice. Due to our comprehensive facilities we can also provide development and type-test services. We are able to assist in the design of bespoke monitoring systems for specific applications.
The PHE has many years of experience in radiation protection and provides advice to thousands of customers representing all the major industry sectors as well as to users in the fields of education, research and medicine. PHE is at the very forefront of research into the effects of ionising radiation and liaises closely with regulatory bodies on any changes in the legislation. Organisations using our instrument testing service can be assured that the tests satisfy regulatory requirements and comply with national guidance and best practice.
