This technical report applies only to those aspects of the installation ensuring the safety of the PATIENT, the OPERATOR and other persons during the RADIOTHERAPY EQUIPMENT use. General construction requirements are not addressed in this technical report.

The installations considered in this technical report are those in which are located RADIOTHERAPY EQUIPMENT delivering IONIZING RADIATION used for therapeutic purpose, such as MEDICAL ELECTRON ACCELERATORS, GAMMA BEAM THERAPY EQUIPMENT AND GAMMA-RAY AFTERLOADING EQUIPMENT.
