Radiation protection instrumentation – Data format for radiation instruments used in the detection of illicit trafficking of radioactive materials
|Publication Date:||1 July 2020|
|ICS Code (Radiation protection):||13.280|
Scope and object
The purpose of this International Standard is to provide a uniform format for data to be output from radiation measurement instruments for use in detection of illicit trafficking of radioactive materials. This enables interpretation of data without reference to manufacturer's documentation.
This standard specifies the data format used for both required and optional data available at the output of radiation measurement instruments that are used for the detection of illicit trafficking of radioactive materials. The performance requirements for these types of radiation measurement instruments are described in other standards such as IEC 62401, IEC 62533, IEC 62694, IEC 62244, IEC 62327, IEC 62484, and IEC 62618 1.
The output consists of measurement data and results of any analysis performed by the radiation measurement instrument.
This standard does not address instrument control, data transmission protocols, or the physical media used for communications.
To ensure the largest interoperability of radiation instruments and worldwide operations, the technical content (e.g. data elements and attributes, document structure) of this standard matches the ANSI/IEEE N42.42 standard .
