Radiation Safety Authority warns dentists from directly importing a certain type of handheld x-ray and recalls that require a permit from the Authority for the use of such equipment. The reason is that the British Health Protection Agency (HPA) found that radiation doses from the equipment is too high.

Radiation Safety Authority has from the British organization Health Protection Agency, HPA, received a report that a handheld X-ray machine that is intended for dental and imported from China have defects in radiation safety. The apparatus, which is very low priced, is not CE marked and can be directly imported by ordering over the internet. - HPA has measured the radiation doses that the device gives the operator and patient and concluded that radiation doses are too high. We want to warn dentists from directly importing such equipment and points out to require a permit from the Radiation Safety Authority to import any type of X-ray, says Anders Wikander, inspector at the Nuclear Power Inspectorate. Radiation Safety Authority has not yet received reports that this or similar devices are in Sweden.




In the past, FDA, U.S. Food and Drug Administration, warned against this kind of device.

Fact:
The obligation to seek permission applies both to manufacture, import, sale, transfer, lease, acquisition, possession, use, install or maintain any type of X-ray equipment. For regular dental x-ray apparatus for intraoral imaging Radiation Act requirements are met by a general license, as described in regulation SSMFS 2008:5. For all other x-ray requires a special permit.

Stress Tests: Nuclear power plants must report action plans

April 26, 2012
Now that the country requires the Radiation Safety NPPs indicate plans for the measures to be implemented as a result of the stress tests. Action plans will be reported to the Authority by 15 September 2012.

In late December the Radiation Safety Authority a report on the stress tests nuclear power plants did after the nuclear accident in Japan last year. During the spring, then international experts examined the Swedish report. In light of both these examinations require the Agency now that nuclear power plants indicate plans to further strengthen its resistance to earthquakes, floods and extreme weather conditions such as ice storms.

- We see no need for immediate action from nuclear power plants. It depends largely on the Swedish plants successively carried out important safety improvements, and partly by the failure filter, introduced in the 1980s, partly through the work of the modernization that we adopted in the early 2000's. The Swedish strategy has been to continually work with security improvements, said Jan Hanberg, Chief of the Radiation Safety.

- But the work of the stress tests were still important because it demonstrated both the potential improvements and shortcomings to be addressed by the works in the long term to strengthen the reactor's resistance to such natural disasters.

Radiation Safety Authority expects the plant response plans including the following areas:

ways to cool the spent fuel pool (diversified cooling)
water source independent of the other power supply
enhanced power supply
measures to deal with failures when multiple plants are affected at the same time or where the incident becomes protracted
Nuclear power plant action plans shall be reported to the Authority by 15 September 2012.
