About RPU

RPU has been involved in ionizing-radiation measurements and radiation protection since the beginning of TRIGA Reactor’s operation in 1966. The responsibility of SVPIS is the radiation control of all the activities at the Institute dealing with ionizing radiation. So our main task is the supervision of Reactor and the 17 laboratories that use sources of radiation in their research work. More than a hundred different sources are used, such as sealed sources, open sources, X-ray units and the accelerator TANDETRON, which need regulatory control.

RPU is qualified to perform control in medical, industrial and research institutions dealing with open and sealed sources. In industry and research we are also qualified to control X-ray units. The measurements of dose rate and contamination are performed with an accredited method (EN ISO/IEC 17025).
