The IAEA/WHO SSDL Network is an association of national SSDLs that have agreed to cooperate in promoting the objectives of that Network under international auspices. Its objectives are:
- Accuracy: to provide dosimetry services and create and distribute knowledge in radiation dosimetry in order to improve the accuracy level in dose measurements;
- Traceability: to establish and facilitate links between end users of dosimeters, the SSDL members and the SI system for radiation measurements;
- Consistency: to promote international recommendations on methods applied for calibration and performance of dosimetry in order to achieve consistency of measurements in all countries;
- Cooperation: to promote further the exchange of experience between the members and the metrology community, and to provide support to each other where necessary.
