About the UKAS Medical Physics and Clinical Engineering (MPACE) programme

UKAS has undertaken a pilot programme in the areas of Radiotherapy Physics and Clinical Engineering (Management of Medical Devices) to confirm that BS 70000 is an appropriate standard to demonstrate competence and reliability of services delivered in these areas.

Associated Standards

  • BS 70000:2017  Medical physics, clinical engineering and associated scientific services in healthcare – Requirements for quality, safety and competence

Current status

In October 2019 UKAS granted its first accreditation in these areas, and is now in a position to accredit other services for these areasread more.

The development project is now looking to widen the scope of accreditation to cover other disciplines within the Medical Physics and Clinical Engineering area. 

The MPACE project is now developing accreditation for other disciplines covered by BS 70000, including :

  • Nuclear Medicine
  • Rehabilitation Engineering
  • Clinical Movement Analysis

A number of expressions of interest have been published, but UKAS will seek to develop accreditation in other areas based on demand.
