Compliance testing, to confirm the radiation safety and performance of diagnostic and interventional X-ray units, is carried out to various extents in all jurisdictions. The results of the tests can be used by regulators as a basis for registering the units or for authorising use. Compliance standards can also be used to specify requirements for new units, for on-going performance testing, and for signalling when units are no longer compliant and may need remedial action or replacement.

The draft standard has been written on the basis of four modalities (Computed Tomography, mammography, fluoroscopy, and general X-ray equipment) and is designed so that it can be revised in future with the addition of requirements for other modalities.
