6 x 6 X-Ray Recognition  

The European Union Commission Regulation (EU) No 185/2010, Section 11.4.1 requires persons operating X-ray or Explosive Detection System (EDS) equipment shall be subject to recurrent training consisting of image recognition training and testing. This training shall take the form of: (a) classroom and/or computer based training (CBT) or (b) on-the-job Threat Image Projection (TIP) training. 
 
For classroom and/or CBT, persons shall be subject to image recognition training and testing for at least six hours in every six month period. 
 
An image library shall be used containing at least 1,000 images of at least 250 different threat articles, including images of component parts of threat articles, with each article captured in a variety of different orientations. 
 

Special requirements 

There shall be an unpredictable selection of images from the library during the training and testing. The threat articles must be compliant with Section 6.0.2 for Cargo, and Section 6.0.3 for Mail. (Assembled explosive and incendiary devices that are not carried in accordance with the applicable safety rules shall be considered as prohibited articles in consignments of cargo and mail.) 
 
Each Directed Party is responsible for interpreting the EU requirements and providing the Regulator with sufficient evidentiary documentation to demonstrate compliance. 
 
Training dates are arranged subject to requirements.

Online X-Ray Training  

XIR6x6 is our custom built Online X-Ray Image Recognition Training programme. 
 
As part of EC300, on 31.10.10, cargo X-Ray operators are required to complete 6 hours of Image recognition training every 6-month period. We have now made it even easier for X-Ray operators to undertake the required training by providing an online platform where there is a series of 18 tests; each accounting for 20 minutes towards the time required. A database of each user’s training progress is accessible by the users and their supervisor. Records can be directly accessed and printed on demand. 
 
With the easy to use interface, no specific computer skills are required. 
 
 
Once enrolled on the programme, users will receive an email containing access details to their own online account, from which they will be able to complete training whenever is most convenient for them. 
Company admin staff that wish to have monitoring access only will be added free of charge. Warehouse supervisors that will need monitoring ability as well as training access will be sent complete instructions on how to use and manage the system. 
For more information and to set up your on-line account, or for access to a free demo please contact us via phone or email. 
 
You can also send your staff to our facilities to complete their hours.
