FDA X-ray Calibration Laboratory: Traceability to National Standards


H. T. Heaton


The Food and Drug Administration maintains an X-ray Calibration Facility to calibrate instruments that inspectors use to verify compliance with the Radiation Control Health and Safety Act (RCHSA) and the Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA). To maintain a strong traceability to the national standards and to provide creditability to the calibrations, the Calibration Laboratory is accredited by NVLAP.
