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.
