The primary role of the medical physicist or clinical engineer with respect to this is to provide
advice and guidance to the employer on the effect of EM fields in the medical
sector to ensure not only compliance with the relevant legislations but also patient safety.
The provision of high quality physiological measurement services delivered in a safe and effective
manner is of vital importance. The Clinical Scientist has a central role in the provision of these
The Ionising Radiation (Medical Exposure) Regulations 2017 (IRMER) require that the competence
of Medical Physics Experts (MPEs) is recognised by the Secretary of State.
IPEM’s Ionising Radiation Special Interest Groups (SIGs) have undertaken a review of coverage of competencies in the MPE curriculum provided by national standards and training schemes in medical physics.
