Sweden Recognizes William Blum as a Radiation Protection Expert

NDT-CGI was tasked by AlfaTest AB of Helsingborg, Sweden to assist them in their application to the Swedish Radiation Safety Authority (Strålsäkerhetsmyndigheten) for permission to perform radiographic testing with ionizing radation in Sweden.  In doing so, AlfaTest need a Radiation Protection Expert (strålskyddsexpert) and submitted William E. Blum's qualification to the authorities for recognition as a Radiation Protection Expert.  In conjunction with the approval for AlfaTest to perform Radiographic Testing, Mr. Blum was recognized by the Swedish Radiation Safety Authority as a Radiation Protection Expert (strålskyddsexpert).  Mr. Blum's previous experience in helping US companies attain permission from the NRC to perform radiography with radioactive isotopes and him acting as RSO for those companies no doubt eased the way for the Swedish Authorities to recognize that he has the qualifications required to act as a Radiation Protection Expert (strålskyddsexpert).
