    1. Scope

    1.1 This practice addresses the specific requirements for laboratories engaged in dosimetry calibrations involving ionizing radiation, namely, gamma-radiation, electron beams or X-radiation (bremsstrahlung) beams. It specifically describes the requirements for the characterization and performance criteria to be met by a high-dose radiation dosimetry calibration laboratory.

    1.2 The absorbed-dose range is typically between 10 and 10 Gy.

    1.3 This practice addresses criteria for laboratories seeking accreditation for performing high-dose dosimetry calibrations, and is a supplement to the general requirements accreditation organization.

    1.3.1 By meeting these criteria dn those in ISO/IEC 17025, the laboratory may be accredited by a recognized accreditation organization.

    1.3.2. Adherence to these criteria will help to ensure high standards of performance and instill confidence regarding the competency of the accredited laboratory with respect to the services it offers.

    1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and healthy practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
