SSDL Calibration Services

Description

Calibration is the measurement of the gap between a reference point as determined by the secondary standards dosimetry laboratory and the customer’s instrument. This gap is called the calibration factor and it is reported in a calibration certificate.

Calibration is essential to ensure that accurately known doses are delivered to patients undergoing diagnosis and therapy, and that radiation measurement instruments used throughout the UAE provide the expected degree of accuracy to support radiation protection.

The secondary standards dosimetry laboratory’s calibration services are accredited by the Emirates National Accreditation System (ENAS) and based on the ISO/IEC 17025:2017 Standard on the General Requirements for the Competence of Testing and Calibration Laboratories. FANR’s secondary standards dosimetry laboratory is accredited since December 2018.

FANR’s secondary standards dosimetry laboratory (SSDL) offers calibration services to the users of radiation measurement instruments. The list of these services is available on the website of ENAS.
