Radiation services

ANSTO has over 35 years' experience in providing radiation safety management with teams offering radiation consultancy, instrument calibration and radiation safety training tailored to our clients needs.

COVID-19 Update

ANSTO is committed to the health and wellbeing of our people, users, collaborators and communities. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are making changes to support continuity of operations.

The majority of ANSTO staff are now working remotely. Here's an update on what this means for Radiation Services:

Instrument calibrations are operating in a limited capacity only, with only essential instruments able to be calibrated. 

Training course delivery is temporarily suspended. All persons enrolled in a course will be contacted directly if their course has been suspended. 

Radiation Consultancy work that has been completed to date will be finalised and we will discuss with you how best to deliver remaining work and options for that as the situation improves. 

If you require more information or assistance please contact our team via radiationservices@ansto.gov.au or call +61 2 9717 3251.
