Radiation protection instrumentation – Spectrometric radiation portal monitors (SRPMs) used for the detection and identification of illicit trafficking of radioactive material
|Publication Date:||1 October 2020|
|ICS Code (Radiation protection):||13.280|
This document defines the performance requirements of installed monitors used for the detection and identification of gamma emitters and the detection of neutron radiation emitters. These monitors are commonly known as spectrometric radiation portal monitors or SRPMs. They are used to monitor vehicles, cargo containers, people, or packages and are typically used at national and international border crossings and ports of entry. SRPMs may be used at any location where there is a need for this type of monitoring.
This document establishes the general, radiological, climatic, mechanical, electric and electromagnetic and documentation requirements and associated test methods. A summary of the performance requirements is provided in Table 11. An informative listing of environmental requirements from IEC 62706 is provided in Table 12.
This document does not apply to the performance of non-spectroscopic portal monitors covered in IEC 62244.
