Accreditation and certification

Our nuclear measurements service was the first Belgian nuclear laboratory ever to be accredited: it obtained its certificate in 1995 from Beltest (currently BELAC).

At this moment the following test-laboratories have achieved an accreditation by Belac which officialy proves their competence to execute a very specific service as described in the so-called scope:

  • Gammaspectrometry
  • Non Destructive Analysis
  • Reactordosimetry
  • Radiochemical Analysis
  • Low Level Radioactivity Measurements
  • Mechanical Tests
  • Dosimetry
  • Anthropogammametry

SCKCEN also has obtained Belac accredition for the nuclear calibration laboratory with its own specific scope:

  • Nuclear Calibrations

Following processes are certified according to ISO 9001:

  • SCK-BR2 Belgian reactor 2
    General management of the BR2 research reactor and specifically the production of medical & industrial radioisotopes and neutron transmutation dope silicon
    Certificaat ISO 9001 - BR2 (Eng).pdf
  • DECOMMISSIONING Reactor BR3; Materials & Document Management (Dismantling - Decontamination - radwaste characterization and clearance - Removal - site denuclearization).
    Certificaat ISO 9001 - DDW (Eng).pdf
  • Management of all W&D research projects with a contractual value of at least Euro 50000/year.
    Research project concerns: contacting the client, drawing up the R&D plan, management of personnel, management of the budget, follow up of the agreed planning, follow up of deliverables, review of the research project, consulting the client, adapting the R&D plan and closing the research project.
