This Standard specifies the characteristics of reference sources for the calibration of surface contamination monitors. It relates to alpha-emitters, beta-emitters and photon emitters of maximum photon energy not greater than 1,5 MeV. It does not describe the procedures involved in the use of these reference sources for the calibration. Such procedures are specified in DIN EN 60325 (VDE 0493-2-1), DIN EN 62363 (VDE 0493-2-4) and other documents.
