Inspections

EEAE performs numerous inspections as to the radiation emission provisions which fall under its regulatory competence all over Greece. Such inspections are:
• scheduled, namely they are conducted within the framework of the licensing procedure (issuance of an initial license or renewal of license, equipment upgrade, rechecks) or after a related request, or
• "extraordinary", namely they are conducted at any time in order to verify the implementation of the radiological safety and radiation protection program.

In both cases, the inspections are either "announced" or "unannounced", applying different control protocols.

Medical laboratories

The inspections at medical laboratories are either scheduled or "extraordinary". Both types of inspections are aiming at ensuring radiation protection. 

EEAE inspects and licenses the facilities and the applications of ionizing radiation, as well as the use of radioactive sources, in medicine, industry and research, and the applications and facilities of non-ionizing radiation in medicine (MRI), by issuing certificates of compliance or/and special operation licenses.
