Radiation Protection Dosimetry and Accreditation of IMS: Secrets & Solutions 13 to 17 May 2019 in Paris

Radiation Protection Dosimetry and Accreditation of IMS: Secrets & Solutions (based on Radiation Protection 160)


It is our great pleasure to invite you to a Training Course on Radiation Protection Dosimetry and Accreditation of IMS: Secrets & Solutions, based on the European document RP160, to be held at IRSN in FONTENAY AUX ROSES and one day at the Individual Monitoring Service (IMS) at IRSN in LE VESINET, Paris, France, from 13th to 17th May 2019.

The Training Course will be organized by the EURADOS WG02 on Harmonization of Individual Monitoring in Europe and IRSN in Paris.

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 Paris in May 2019.

Organizing and Program Committees

IRSN, a public body with industrial and commercial activities, was set up in 2001. The Institute is placed under the joint authority of the Ministries of Defense, Environment, Industry, Research, and Health. IRSN is the national public expert for research and technical support on radiation protection and nuclear safety risks.

IRSN is entrusted with expertise and research missions in the following areas:

  • Nuclear safety: reactors, fuel cycle, waste, medical applications and transports
  • Protection of workers, population and environment against ionizing radiation risks
  • Emergency preparedness and post-accident operational support
  • Protection and control of nuclear sensitive materials
  • Protection of nuclear facilities and transport of radioactive and fissile materials against malicious acts.

The institute interacts with all parties concerned by these risks (public authorities, local authorities, companies, research organizations, stakeholders’ associations, etc.) to contribute to public policy issues relating to nuclear safety, human and environmental protection against ionizing radiation, and the protection of nuclear materials, facilities, and transport against the risk of malicious acts.

IRSN employs 1,800 people, including many specialists, engineers, researchers, physicians, veterinary surgeons and technicians, as well as experts in nuclear safety, radiation protection and control of sensitive nuclear materials. IRSN also hosts the activities of 81 doctoral students and 6 post-doctoral students.

IRSN budget is 280 € millions spent per year (2017) with 40% devoted to research and 51% allocated to technical support and public service missions.

8 establishments in France,  including 3 major sites: Fontenay-aux-Roses, Cadarache and Le Vésinet.
