American National Standard for Evaluation and Performance of Radiation Detection Portal Monitors for Use in Homeland Security
|Publication Date:||1 January 2016|
This standard establishes the performance requirements and provides the testing and evaluation criteria for installed radiation portal monitors (RPMs) that detect photon- and neutron-emitting radioactive substances by monitoring people, packages, containers, and vehicles.
Performance requirements for portal monitors with radionuclide identification capabilities are addressed by the ANSI N42.38 standard [B19]. Performance requirements for mobile and transportable systems are addressed by the ANSI N42.43 standard [B20].
