About the ACDS

The Australian Clinical Dosimetry Service (ACDS) is a national independent dosimetry auditing program, providing quality assurance for radiation oncology facilities and patients. The ACDS has been operating since February 2011, covering 100% of Australian radiotherapy facilities. We are accredited by NATA to ISO: 17025 under Performance and Approvals Testing. The ACDS offers a multi-level audit service on a four year subscription basis.
