1 Scope and object
This International Standard applies to contamination warning assemblies, meters andmonitors used for the monitoring of radioactive contamination on the surface of personnelwhether they be clothed or not. The standard is applicable only to that type of equipmentwhere the user takes no action other than to present himself and/or his hands and feet to thedetectors. lt is not applicable to equipment where the user or someone else moves detectorsover the area to be monitored or the user passes quickly through the monitor. lt is also notapplicable to any peripheral equipment which may be associated with a particular type ofequipment such as small article monitors.
This standard is applicable to the monitoring of the whole body (including the face), handsand feet but parts of this standard may be used for equipment designed for the monitoring ofradioactive contamination on the hands and/or feet only.
This standard is applicable to:
installed personnel monitoring equipment (all Clauses applicable);
equipment for monitoring the hands (see the following Clauses and Subclauses: 2,3,4,5,6,7.1.2,7.2,7.3.2, b),7.4.2,,, b),7.5,7.6,7.7,8,9,10,11and 12);
equipment for monitoring the feet (see the following Clauses and Subclauses:2,3,4,5,,7.2,7.3.3, C),7.4.2,,, c),7.5,7.6,7.7,8,9,10,11,12and 13);
equipment for monitoring the hands and feet (see the following Clauses and Subclauses 2,3,4,5,6,7.1.2,7.1.3,7.2,7.3.2,7.3.3, b), c),7.4.2,,, b), c),7.5,7.6,7.7,8,9,10,11 and 12).
The object of this International Standard is to define mechanical and operational character-istics,minimum performance characteristics and general test procedures for personnelmonitoring equipment.

3 Terms and definitions
For the purposes of this document, the terms and definitions given in lEC 60050(393) and lEC60050(394), as well as the following apply.
NOTE In this standard, the word “shall” signifies a mandatory requirement, the word “should” signifies a
mandatory requirement except under certain circumstances which must be specified, and the word “may” signifesan acceptable method or example of good practice.
warning assembly
equipment designed to indicate either visually or audibly or both that some quantity exceeds acertain value. In this standard, it means primarily radioactive contamination on hands, feet,body or clothing.
surface emission rate of a source
number of particles or photons of a given type above a given energy emerging per unit timefrom the source or its window
