International Qualified Expert
Ionactive provides an international qualified expert (QE) service for ionising radiation users around the world. The QE is defined by the IAEA ‘...an individual who, by virtue of certification by appropriate boards or societies, professional licences or academic qualifications and experience, is duly recognized as having expertise in a relevant field of specialization, e.g. medical physics, radiation protection, occupational health...'. The UK Radiation Protection Adviser (RPA) and Radioactive Waste Adviser (RWA) are broadly equivalent to a Qualified Expert and offer equivalent advice to radiation users.
