NDT Companies

ARPS has been providing RPA services to NDT companies for many years, helping ensure compliance with the Ionising Radiations Regulations 1999 (IRR99) throughout their operations.  Our NDT experience primarily concerns the use of gamma radiography, x-ray radiography and use of betatron units; however we are always interested in the use of novel techniques.

The RPA service provided to NDT companies can include;

  • Day-to-day advice on radiation protection and compliance with the IRR99
  • Preparation and review of radiation management procedures and radiological risk assessments
  • Preparation of registration applications to the various UK environment agencies (SEPA / EA)
  • Training of personnel, both on site and at our premises in Westhill
  • Site visits and audits
  • Recall and calibration of dose rate and contamination monitors
  • Analysis of sealed source leak tests and provision of associated certification
  • Provision and management of personal dosimetry
  • General support for special projects and other radiation-related issues
  • Shielding design for industrial radiography enclosures
  • Critical assessments of new structures for radiography under the IRR99
