The UK Branch of IAFR covers the United Kingdom
The IAFR has its roots in United Kingdom, but the UK branch of the IAFR wasn’t formed until 2021.
During its first year the UK branch aims to provide some training and update national forensic radiography guidance with support of the Society and College of Radiographers, the UK national body.
