The process of applying for a radiation permit in a nutshell

The radiation protection expert of NOXX radiation safety services always visits you and your company before the application process starts. Together we look into the wishes you and your company have and the legal implications the use of your type of use of radiation has. The radiation protection expert of NOXX radiation safety services will give you a sound advice on the best way to obtain a radiation permit for your institution. For example, obtaining a permit for irradiating patients with a x-ray machine follows a different trajectory than obtaining a permit for the use of radioactive substances.

After the first meeting, a mutual agreement is drawn up in which the various parts of the quality assurance process are named and described. The radiation protection expert will provide you with a list of items that your institution needs to supply to NOXX radiation safety services. These documents will be used as appendices with the application of the radiation permit. EXamples are an extract from the Chamber of Commerce, an authorization with which you allow NOXX radiation safety services to carry out the application for the license on your behalf and internal appointments and protocols. The radiation expert from NOXX radiation safety services will guide you through the entire process and relieve you from administrative duties as much as possible.

When all documents have been received, the radiation protection expert starts drawing up the documents that must be sent with the permit application. Which documents these are differs per application and per the way radiation is used in your company. The preparation of these documents is always tailor-made. An example of this is the risk analysis that must be drawn up for each application involving ionizing radiation. The risks associated with using a pet CT scanner are different from those associated with using a handheld XRF scanner (for element analysis) in industrial applications. Customization and making the risks manageable for each institution is in this regard of great importance.

Once all documents have been drawn up, the application can be submitted to the ‘Autoriteit Nucleaire Veiligheid en Stralingsbescherming’ (ANVS). A statutory processing period of 8 weeks applies to the handling of the application by the licensing autority. This is usually followed by a round of in-depth questions from the licensing authority. Obtaining a radiation permit therefore usually takes 14 weeks or more.
