• Complex license Randwyck


    -Click here for the Dutch version-


    The logos above represent the institutions that collaborate in the fields of scientific research and education, medical care and patient oriented biomedical research projects. A substantial amount of sources of ionising radiation is being used in these fields. Because of this fact, and also taking into consideration the coherence during most applications, the shared infrastructure and concentration of sources on the terrain, the institutions were granted a collective complex license for the first time in 1997. In this license, the terrain/campus Randwyck is considered to be one location.


    The license has been updated numerous times since 1997 for various reasons. Partners have left or joined, expanded their activities and developed new applications in both medical and scientific fields. The latest change, being the development of proton therapy on the terrain Randwyck by ZON-PTC, a joint venture of MAASTRO clinic and azM, has been reason to submit a new application for a complex license in 2017. This application included the revision of the ‘Regulation Radiation Protection Randwyck’, in which the collaboration of the participating institutions with regards to radiation protection has been described and formalized, in compliance with the most recent legal requirements. This document also holds a description of internal policies and procedures, and describes the various applications of ionising radiation within the institutions and the consequences of this usage for man and environment.


    The current complex license and the “Regulations Radiation Protection Randwyck” can be reached through the following links, although only in Dutch:


    The policy on radiation protection within the institutions on the terrain Randwyck aims to stimulate radiation protection within patient care, scientific research and education, within the framework of the law and the institution’s own regulations, by:

    • translating legal terms into internal regulations;
    • integrating radiation protection into operational management of departments;
    • actively involving employees in justification and optimization of applications;
    • increasing knowledge and skills wherever possible;
    • integrating the subject of radiation protection into regular educational programs.


    Also, through this policy it is secured that:

    • the direct health effects of ionising radiation are prevented and chance-related effects are reduced as much as possible. This applies to persons inside and outside of the work place, that may be exposed to ionising radiation;
    • the exposure of environment and laboratory animals is as low as possible.


    The annual report on applications of sources of ionising radiation within the Randwyck institutions offers a qualitative and quantitative insight into the activities that have been carried out in the course of a year (only in Dutch language).
