Authorised experts for radiation protection cooperate with employers in the assessment of the protection workers exposed to radiation, provide advice regarding work conditions of exposed workers, the scope of implementation of radiation protection measures in observed and supervised areas, examining the effectiveness of these measures, regular calibration of measuring equipment and examining the serviceability of protective equipment and provide training for exposed workers in radiation protection. Authorised experts for radiation protection also examine in regular intervals the level of ionising radiation and contamination of the working environment and working conditions in observed and supervised areas and provide training in radiation protection. An authorised expert for radiation protection must obtain an authorisation from the competent body for an individual field of radiation protection or more fields of radiation protection for a period of five years maximum.

Individual areas of radiation protection are:  

  • activities in health care and veterinary medicine where devices are used that emit ionising radiation (hereinafter referred to as: radiation) as a consequence of particle acceleration (X-ray devices, particle accelerators);
  • activities in health care and veterinary medicine where open or closed sources of radiation are used;
  • individual activities outside health care and veterinary medicine defined in the authorisation. 

 

Conditions

  • The natural entity can obtain the authorisation of an expert on protection against radiation in individual areas of protection against radiation for: 

    • providing expert opinion on the implementation of the assessment of the protection of exposed workers against radiation, work conditions of exposed workers, the scope of implementing the measures of protection against radiation in the observed and controlled areas, verifying the efficiency of those measures, regular calibration of the measurement equipment and verifying the usability of protection equipment;
    • submission of contents determined in the regulation stipulating the training of exposed workers, interns, students, responsible persons for the protection against radiation and workers in organisation units for protection against radiation. 

    The areas of protection against radiation are: 

    • activities in health care and veterinary practice, where devices with ionising radiation (radiation) as the consequence of acceleration of particles (x-ray devices, particle accelerators) are used;
    • activity in health care and veterinary practice where sealed and unsealed sources of radiation are use;
    • individual activities outside health care and veterinary practice determined in the authorisation.

    For acquiring an authorisation, the natural entity must submit the application at the ministry competent for health.
