Scope and object

This International Standard applies to contamination warning assemblies, meters and monitors used for the monitoring of radioactive contamination on the surface of personnel whether they be clothed or not. The standard is applicable only to that type of equipment where the user takes no action other than to present himself and/or his hands and feet to the detectors. It is not applicable to equipment where the user or someone else moves detectors over the area to be monitored or the user passes quickly through the monitor. It is also not applicable to any peripheral equipment which may be associated with a particular type of equipment such as small article monitors.

This standard is applicable to the monitoring of the whole body (including the face), hands and feet but parts of this standard may be used for equipment designed for the monitoring of radioactive contamination on the hands and/or feet only.

This standard is applicable to:

- installed personnel monitoring equipment (all Clauses applicable);

- equipment for monitoring the hands (see the following Clauses and Subclauses: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7.1.2, 7.2, 7.3.2, 7.4.1.2 b), 7.4.2, 7.4.3.1, 7.4.3.2, 7.4.3.3 b), 7.5, 7.6, 7.7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12);

- equipment for monitoring the feet (see the following Clauses and Subclauses: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7.1.3, 7.2, 7.3.3, 7.4.1.2 c), 7.4.2, 7.4.3.1, 7.4.3.2, 7.4.3.3 c), 7.5, 7.6, 7.7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 and 13);

- equipment for monitoring the hands and feet (see the following Clauses and Subclauses 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7.1.2, 7.1.3, 7.2, 7.3.2, 7.3.3, 7.4.1.2 b), 7.4.1.2 c), 7.4.2, 7.4.3.1, 7.4.3.2, 7.4.3.3 b), 7.4.3.3 c), 7.5, 7.6, 7.7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12).

The object of this International Standard is to define mechanical and operational characteristics, minimum performance characteristics and general test procedures for personnel monitoring equipment.
