Kinectrics Dosimetry Lab Accredited by CNSC

February 17, 2014

Canada's first commercial Alpha Dosimetry Lab, now installed and operating at the Kinectrics head office site, has been licensed by the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) under Regulatory Standard S-106. The new lab was previously accredited to ISO / IEC 17025 by the Standards Council of Canada (SCC) under CAN-P-4E, for the measurement of alpha emitters in both urine and fecal samples.

Through the alpha dosimetry program, the Canadian nuclear power industry can further demonstrate that the protective equipment and procedures in place during refurbishment and maintenance activities are successful in protecting their workforce from contamination. These services are also now available to all CANDU operators and other interested parties.
