SSDL Network


There are three different types of membership in the SSDL Network:

  • Full member: This is an SSDL that complies with all the requirements of the Charter. Full members will have access to all benefits described in the Charter. A full member may act as a regional designated centre supporting the SSDL Network by coordinating the activities in a particular region.
  • Provisional member: This is a temporary position of an SSDL that does not fully comply with the Charter, and consequently might not receive all the benefits.
  • Affiliated member: This is typically a primary standards dosimetry laboratory (PSDL) that cooperates with the IAEA in the operation of the SSDL Network. An affiliated member can also be an international organization with a mandate in the field of dosimetry or metrology.
