Instrument Testing

Radiation Monitoring Instruments that are used to demonstrate compliance with legislation must be tested before their first use, then annually (Part 4 (20) IRR17 and ACOP).

Our instrument testing laboratory is equipped to perform these statutory tests and we will be pleased to carry out the necessary work on your behalf.  All our results are traceable to the primary standard held at NPL.

You will not be without your monitor/s for more than the minimum time required to undertake these tests.  All we ask if that you make your own delivery and collection arrangements, as we have found that this approach means that we can keep down the overall cost of the service.  Discounts may be available if several instruments are tested at the same time.

Please contact us if you would like more information about instrument testing.

A Contamination Status Form must accompany each instrument sent to us for testing.
