The authors will offer to present the purpose of metrology in the regulation scheme to protect the individuals and workers in the field of radiations, from ionizing radiation to electro-magnetic ones. Calibration ways and measurement methods will be introduced for three types of radiations: ionising radiation, visible radiation and electro-magnetic radiation. For each wavelength domain the authors will develop the cooperation between the regulation and the accreditation schemes to guarantee the quality of measurements, with some information about the specific metrology developed to assure traceability to the international system and some specific methods of measurement.
Key words: regulation scheme / accreditation / protection / radiation
