Radiation Protection Dosimetry and Accreditation of IMS: Secrets & Solutions 20 to 23 April 2022 in Kraków

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 IFJ PAN, Kraków, Poland, from 20th to 23rd April 2022.

Wawel Royal Castle in Kraków

The Training Course will be organized by the EURADOS WG02 on Harmonization of Individual Monitoring in Europe and IFJ PAN in Kraków. This well-established education and training event is supported by PTB, the general organization is done by Oliver Hupe, PTB.

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 Kraków in April 2022.

Organizing and Program Committees

The Henryk Niewodniczański Institute of Nuclear Physics (IFJ PAN) is currently one of the largest research institutes of the Polish Academy of Sciences.

The broad range of studies and activities of IFJ PAN includes basic and applied research, ranging from particle physics and astrophysics, through hadron physics, high-, medium-, and low-energy nuclear physics, condensed matter physics (including materials engineering), to various applications of methods of nuclear physics in interdisciplinary research, covering medical physics, dosimetry, radiation and environmental biology, environmental protection, and other related disciplines.

The average yearly yield of the IFJ PAN in recent years encompasses over 600 scientific papers in the Journal Citation Reports published by the Clarivate Analytics.

The part of the Institute is the Cyclotron Centre Bronowice (CCB) which is an infrastructure, unique in Central Europe, to serve as a clinical and research centre in the area of medical and nuclear physics.
