Covid-19 crisis update

We are endeavouring to provide our full range of services during the latest Covid-19 restrictions. All RPC staff remain contactable via email and the main office telephone number (020 8725 1050) during normal office hours. We will prioritise urgent work and aim to perform commissioning tests of all new X-ray equipment. We are performing a limited amount of routine quality assurance testing where clients are willing to accommodate our visits. RPA/MPE/RWA/LPA audits are likely to be delayed due to their face-to-face nature and will be resumed as soon as possible, which is expected to be over the coming months. Please contact us by email or telephone if you wish to arrange your routine equipment testing or audit visit.

Training courses will resume from April, subject to prevailing government guidelines. Details of our training course schedule will appear under the Training Courses tab on our website as soon as dates have been confirmed.

Our personal dose monitoring services and JPL calibration and repair laboratory continue to function as normal.

The John Perry Laboratory (JPL) is RPC's Calibration Laboratory

JPL specialises in calibrating dosemeters and kVp meters (invasive and non-invasive) that are used in the field of diagnostic radiology. JPL has been in operation since 1994 and is also certificated to ISO 9001:2015. 

In 2009 JPL became the first laboratory of its kind in the UK to gain accreditation to ISO 17025 "General requirements for the Competence of calibration and testing laboratories".  In the UK, this is generally known as having UKAS accreditation. This accreditation shows that JPL carries out instrument calibrations to the stated accuracy and that these calibrations are fully traceable to primary national standards.
