1) The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprising all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of IEC is to promote international co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. To this end and in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical Specifications, Technical Reports, Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as “IEC Publication(s)”). Their preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested in the subject dealt with may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and non- governmental organizations liaising with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates closely with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by agreement between the two organizations. 2) The formal decisions or agreements of IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an international consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation from all interested IEC National Committees. 3) IEC Publications have the form of recommendations for international use and are accepted by IEC National Committees in that sense. While all reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the technical content of IEC Publications is accurate, IEC cannot be held responsible for the way in which they are used or for any misinterpretation by any end user. 4) In order to promote international uniformity, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC Publications transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional publications. Any divergence between any IEC Publication and the corresponding national or regional publication shall be clearly indicated in the latter.
1 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, 18.104.22.168 b), 7.4.2, 22.214.171.124, 126.96.36.199, 188.8.131.52 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, 184.108.40.206 c), 7.4.2, 220.127.116.11, 18.104.22.168, 22.214.171.124 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, 126.96.36.199 b), 188.8.131.52 c), 7.4.2, 184.108.40.206, 220.127.116.11, 18.104.22.168 b), 22.214.171.124 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 character- istics, minimum performance characteristics and general test procedures for personnel monitoring equipment.
