Metrology of Ionizing Radiation

Pursuant to Law no. 273 of 11th August 1991, the ENEA National Institute of Ionizing Radiation Metrology (INMRI-ENEA) has been officially encharged with measuring the levels of ionizing radiation.

The Institute ensures that actual conditions exist for ionizing radiation measurement to be reliable in all sectors of interest such as radiotherapy, medical radiodiagnostics, radiation protection in the environment, hospitals and scientific research; it is responsible for procedures and tests to provide the Italian national standards for ionizing radiation quantities and the calibration of gauging instruments; it also participates in the technical advisory committee for nuclear safety and health protection of the Italian Prime Minister’s Office.
