DRAFT American National Standard 3 Standard Performance Specifications for Measuring Radon Progeny

This standard specifies minimum performance requirements and performance testing requirements for instruments designed to measure radon progeny in air. In as much as the health effects of exposure to radon progeny, and hence regulatory control, are quantified relative to the ultimate dose delivered by the complete decay of all the radon progeny in the monitored air, the principle measure and of interest is, therefore, the potential alpha energy concentration, expressed in either units of Working Level or joules · m-3 given that primary measurements characterize activity. This standard addresses the needs of users, manufacturers, and regulators concerned with radon progeny measurements.

Other Activities From This Working Group

Current projects that have been authorized by the IEEE SA Standards Board to develop a standard.

No Active Projects

Standards approved by the IEEE SA Standards Board that are within the 10-year lifecycle.

No Active Standards

These standards have been replaced with a revised version of the standard, or by a compilation of the original active standard and all its existing amendments, corrigenda, and errata.

No Superseded Standards

These standards have been removed from active status through a ballot where the standard is made inactive as a consensus decision of a balloting group.

No Inactive-Withdrawn Standards

These standards are removed from active status through an administrative process for standards that have not undergone a revision process within 10 years.
