Dual-Tech Dental Services' qualified dental equipment engineers will help you meet your regulatory and maintenance requirements, taking care of 3-yearly radiological testing and annual electro-mechanical inspections.
A key requirement of both the Ionising Radiations Regulations 2017 (IRR17) and the Ionising Radiation (Medical Exposure) Regulations 2017 (IRMER17) is the need to seek expert advice. In the case of dental practices this will always be from external consultants.
According to the Ionising Radiation (Medical Exposure) Regulations 2017 (IRMER17), An employer must undertake adequate— (a) testing of any equipment before it is first used for a medical radiological purpose; (b) performance testing at regular intervals; (c) performance testing following a maintenance procedure which is capable of affecting the equipment’s performance.More information can be found here: http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2017/1322/contents/made
