The John Perry Laboratory (JPL) is RPC's Calibration Laboratory

JPL specialises in calibrating dosemeters and kVp meters (invasive and non-invasive) that are used in the field of diagnostic radiology. JPL has been in operation since 1994 and is also certificated to ISO 9001:2015.

In 2009 JPL became the first laboratory of its kind in the UK to gain accreditation to ISO 17025:2005 "General requirements for the Competence of calibration and testing laboratories". In the UK, this is generally known as having UKAS accreditation. This accreditation shows that JPL carries out instrument calibrations to the stated accuracy and that these calibrations are fully traceable to primary national standards.
