About

Scope

Standardization in the field of the protection of individuals (workers, patients, members of the public) and the environment against all sources of ionizing radiations in planned, existing or emergency exposure situations linked to nuclear activities, medical activities, industrial activities, research activities and natural radiation sources. It includes notably standardization for the design and use of equipment/systems/sources, metrology of radiation, dosimetry and related protocols, monitoring and measurement methods for the environment, control of goods and materials that may contain radioactive substances.

Excluded: Radiological protection instrumentation matters dealt with by IEC/SC45B and Water quality - Radiological methods dealt with by ISO/TC 147/SC 3
