Type approval

If a supplier wants to introduce a new system in the Dutch screening, then the LRCB first has to subject it to a series of tests: the type approval.

The imaging equipment listed here has passed the digital type test. The systems have been checked according to the Measurement Protocol Acceptance Test. For suppliers, this protocol is available upon request, from the LRCB. The test report itself is available upon request, from the supplier.
