Guide for estimation of measurement uncertainty in dosimetry for radiation processing
|Publication Date:||15 March 2015|
|ICS Code (Radiation measurements):||17.240|
This standard provides guidance on the use of concepts described in the JCGM Evaluation of Measurement Data - Guide to the Expression of Uncertainty in Measurement (GUM) to estimate the uncertainties in the measurement of absorbed dose in radiation processing.
Methods are given for identifying, evaluating and estimating the components of measurement uncertainty associated with the use of dosimetry systems and for calculating combined standard measurement uncertainty and expanded (overall) uncertainty of dose measurements based on the GUM methodology.
Examples are given on how to develop a measurement uncertainty budget and a statement of uncertainty.
This document is one of a set of standards that provides recommendations for properly implementing dosimetry in radiation processing, and provides guidance for achieving compliance with the requirements of ISO/ASTM 52628 related to the evaluation and documentation of the uncertainties associated with measurements made with a dosimetry system. It is intended to be read in conjunction with ISO/ASTM 52628, ISO/ASTM 51261 and ISO/ASTM 52701.
This guide does not address the establishment of process specifications or conformity assessment.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
