Validation of non-national Radiographic Qualifications

Under the EU Directive 2005/36, the Department of Health is the Competent Authority responsible for the validation of non-national radiographic qualifications (diagnostic radiography and radiation therapy). The IIRRT, as the Designated Authority, provides advice to the Department of Health with regard to equivalence of non-national radiographic qualifications. However, the IIRRT does not deal directly with Applicants for validation.

As of July 2011, Application Forms for Validation are no longer available from the IIRRT website. For any queries regarding validation, including Application Forms, please contact the National Validation Office (NVO) of the Health Services Executive directly:
