SSDL Network

Objective

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.
