Welcome to the homepage of the EUTERP Foundation. This website is intended to provide a resource for anybody involved or interested in radiation protection training and education in Europe. It contains information on national training requirements, legislation, upcoming events, courses and news items.
EUTERP Vision for 2020
The EUTERP Foundation is recognised by its Associates, National Contact Points and European Competent Authorities as the focus for radiation protection training information for RPEs, RPOs and radiation workers.
Information exchange is facilitated between all stakeholders in education and training in radiation protection through:
Education and training of Radiation Protection Experts (RPEs) and Radiation Protection Officers (RPOs)
In Europe a clear vision for the required competences in radiation protection for RPEs and RPOs is emerging and efforts are being focused on developing and promoting a consistent approach to the training and development of persons who are going to carry out these roles. The EUTERP Foundation is closely involved with activities in this area and will keep you informed through the Newsletters and updates on the website.
National contact points (NCPs) and Associates
The NCPs play an important role in the EUTERP Foundation. They disseminate information at the national level and keep EUTERP and its Associates
informed about national regulatory requirements, national certification schemes for RPEs, RPOs and workers, etc. The names and contact details for the NCPs can be found under National Information
The EUTERP Associates are key to the running of the EUTERP Foundation, helping the Board to prioritise the issues that are relevant and providing the resources to undertake the programme of work.
