Radiation Protection in X-ray Installations

Working Group 6.33


Thematic focus of this Working Group are type approval of X-ray tube assemblies, X-ray machines and stray radiation sources according to the German Radiation Protection Act. According to this law, the PTB is the only institution in Germany, which performs these type approvals. Type approved devices and X-ray tube assemblies can easier be placed on the market, because no individual authorisations are needed.
