The general topic of the Training Course is the implementation of the European Commission`s Technical Recommendations for Monitoring Individuals Occupationally Exposed to External Radiation (Radiation Protection 160).

The general purpose is the implementation of the European Commission Technical Recommendations for Monitoring Individuals Occupationally Exposed to External Radiation (Radiation Protection 160, RP160). All aspects of individual monitoring as discussed in RP160 will be addressed during the course with an emphasis on metrology, quality assurance and type testing. Recent developments will also be covered, including the changes coming with the new version of ISO/IEC 17025:2017, 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 in individual monitoring for external radiation but in particular for junior or trainee managers of approved dosimetry services.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Lisbon in October 2022.
