IEC 60846-2:2015 applies to portable or transportable dose equivalent (rate) meters and/or monitors for the measurement of ambient and/or directional dose equivalent (rate) from external beta, X and gamma radiation for energies up to 10 MeV during emergency situations. The object of this International Standard is to specify the design requirements and the performance characteristics of dose equivalent (rate) meters intended for the determination of ambient and/or directional dose equivalent (rate) as defined in ICRU Report 47 under emergency conditions. The main technical change with regard to the previous edition consists of an update to the revised edition of IEC 60846-1:2009.
This publication is to be read in conjunction with IEC 60846-1:2009.
