ICS Code (Radiation protection): 13.280
scope:

This International Standard specifies the operational and performance requirements for spectroscopy-based portal monitors used for the detection and identification of illicit trafficking of radioactive material. Spectroscopy-based portal monitors have the ability to detect gamma and neutron radiation and identify gamma-emitting radionuclides that may be present in or on persons, vehicles, containers, or packages in a static or transient mode of operation.

Operational requirements established by this standard include radiation detection and gamma-emitting radionuclide identification, and those requirements associated with the expected electrical, mechanical, and environmental conditions when a portal monitor is deployed.

The object of this standard is to establish performance requirements and to give examples of acceptable test methods, and to specify general characteristics, general test conditions, radiation characteristics, electrical safety, and environmental characteristics to determine if a portal monitor meets the requirements of this standard.

Special applications, which may include a monitor's operation under weather conditions or for detection needs not addressed by this standard, shall require additional testing.

Obtaining operating performance that meets or exceeds the specifications as stated in this standard depends upon properly installing the monitor, establishing appropriate operating parameters, providing security for the monitor, maintaining calibration, implementing a suitable response testing and maintenance program, auditing compliance with quality requirements, and providing proper training for operating personnel.
