Radiation protection instrumentation – Ambient and/or directional dose equivalent (rate) meters and/or monitors for beta, X and gamma radiation

Part 1: Portable workplace and environmental meters and monitors

This standard specifies the general design and performance characteristics of dose equivalent (rate) meters intended for the determination of ambient dose equivalent (rate) and direction dose equivalent (rate), as well as the test methods to be used. It is applicable to beta and/or X and gamma radiation of energies up to 10 MeV and adapts the findings worked out by the discussion of IEC/SC 45B standards dealt with later, i.e. on personal dosemeters (IEC 61526) and passive dosimetry systems (IEC 62387-1 and IEC 61066).
