(This Foreword is not a part of ANSI N42.17C-1989, American National Standard Performance Specifications for Health Physics Instrumentation-Portable Instrumentation for Use in Extreme Environmental Conditions.)

This standard is the responsibility of the Accredited Standards Committee N42 on Radiation Instrumentation. Committee N42 delegated the development of the standard to its Subcommittee N42.1 Drafts were reviewed by Committee N42, Subcommittee N42.1, and other interested parties, and the comments received were utilized in producing the standard as finally approved and discussed. Performance criteria contained in this standard were tested for applicability under the standard was approved by Committee N42 letter ballot of February 6, 1989.

At the time it approved this standard, the Accredited Standards Committee on Radiation Instrumentation, N42, had the following members:

Scope

This standard establishes minimum acceptable performance criteria for health physics instrumentation for use in ionizing radiation fields under extreme environmental conditions. Included are testing methods to establish the acceptability of each type of instrumentation. This standard does not specify which instruments or systems are required, nor does it consider the number of specific applications of such instruments. This standard supplements the basic performance requirements for health physics instrumentation as specified in ANSI N42.17A [2]. 1 Specifications in this standard are expected to be called for by the user as required and should not be considered as general specifications.
