NDS - Laboratory for Dosimetry Standards
The Laboratory for Dosimetry Standards (NDS) was established in 1992 at Section F-2 at the Jožef Stefan Institute in order to offer Slovenia quality metrological support for ionizing radiation measurements, primarily to radiation protection of people and environment.
NDS is the only laboratory in Slovenia to offer measurement traceability in the field of ionizing radiation quantities. Since 2003 it has been accredited by Slovenian Accreditation according to the ISO / IEC 17025 standard. In 2009, NDS was named the National Standard Holder (NNE) in the field of ionizing radiation by the Metrology Institute of the Republic of Slovenia (MIRS). The Laboratory, as NNE, is included in the Slovenian National Metrology System, managed by MIRS.
We are actively engaged in the work of Technical Committee for Ionizing Radiation (TC-IR) at the international organisation EURAMET.
In 2015, the NDS was commissioned modern metrology equipment - a calibration system for mammography X-ray spectra as part of the project "Metrology System Infrastructure - Ionizing Radiation". The metrology equipment was purchased with the help of the European Regional Development Fund by the Metrology Institute of the Republic of Slovenia.
