This operation determines the acceptance criteria for the routine treatment.

Performance qualification is carried out by the customer after any modification of the beam geometry or any change in the conveying system that can involve changes in the distribution of the dose absorbed. Performance qualification is carried out by the Quality Department of the IONISOS plants (Dagneux, Sablé, Pouzauges).

It must be carried out for any changes in the treatment or product parameters since the first industrial treatment.

The ISO 11137 and GMP recommend that this performance qualification has be performed three times
