X-ray Equipment Inspections

Service Description:

To operate x-ray equipment in Canada you have to make sure it meets the applicable regulatory requirements, in many cases both federal and provincial regulations apply.  The Institute’s radiological team can evaluate technical compliance of your x-ray device with Health Canada regulations, under the Radiation Emitting Devices Act, or compliance with the provincial regulations governing radiological criteria of x-ray devices intended for use and registration in a specific province.

In addition to the regulatory technical requirements, we can help you satisfy training and education expectations placed upon employers in possession of x-ray devices. The Institute’s educators are available to come to your site to deliver the training or your staff can join one of our publicly schedule X-ray Safety Courses.
