The Radiation Control Act 1990 states that all ionising radiation apparatuses must be assessed by a Consulting Radiation Expert (CRE) for compliance with the applicable regulatory protocols.
Radiation compliance in New South Wales
The compliance testing process
The testing procedure is performed using state of the art QA testing and dosimetry equipment to assess and calculate radiation parameters, such as the radiation exposure, kVp and mA accuracy, time linearity, tubehead leakage and other pertinent testing criteria.
Compliance certificate and technical report
After a successful assessment, the CRE issues a certificate of compliance, verifying that the tested apparatus met the minimum requirements for compliance, as legislated by Radiation Standard 6.
The CRE also provides a technical report outlining all applicable technical data and notifies the appropriate statutory authorities. All records must be kept as part of the approved QA program to demonstrate compliance with safety standards and to be presented in the event of an audit by the relevant Radiation Health Authority.
