Radiation protection instrumentation - Dosimetry systems with integrating passive detectors for individual, workplace and environmental monitoring of photon and beta radiation (IEC 62387:2020)

This document applies to all kinds of passive dosimetry systems that are used for measuring:
- the personal dose equivalent Hp(10) (for individual whole body monitoring),
- the personal dose equivalent Hp(3) (for individual eye lens monitoring),
- the personal dose equivalent Hp(0,07) (for whole body skin and local skin for extremity monitoring),
- the ambient dose equivalent H*(10) (for workplace and environmental monitoring),
- the directional dose equivalent H'(3) (for workplace and environmental monitoring), or
- the directional dose equivalent H'(0,07) (for workplace and environmental monitoring).

Instrumentation pour la radioprotection - Systèmes dosimétriques avec détecteurs intégrés passifs pour le contrôle radiologique individuel, du lieu de travail et de l'environnement des rayonnements photoniques et bêta (IEC 62387:2020)

IEC 62387:2020 est disponible sous forme de IEC 62387:2020 RLV qui contient la Norme internationale et sa version Redline, illustrant les modifications du contenu technique depuis l'édition précédente.
L'IEC 62387:2020 s’applique à toutes sortes de systèmes dosimétriques passifs utilisés pour la mesure de:
- l’équivalent de dose individuel Hp(10) (pour le contrôle radiologique individuel du corps entier),
- l’équivalent de dose individuel Hp(3) (pour le contrôle radiologique individuel des cristallins),
- l’équivalent de dose individuel Hp(0,07) (pour le contrôle radiologique individuel de la peau du corps entier et de la peau locale et des extrémités),
- l’équivalent de dose ambiant H*(10) (pour le contrôle radiologique du lieu de travail et de l'environnement),
- l’équivalent de dose directionnel H'(3) (pour le contrôle radiologique du lieu de travail et de l'environnement), ou
- l’équivalent de dose directionnel H’(0,07) (pour le contrôle radiologique du lieu de travail et de l'environnement).
Le présent document s’applique aux systèmes dosimétriques qui mesurent les rayonnements photoniques et/ou bêta externes dans la plage de dose comprise entre 0,01 mSv et 10 Sv et dans les plages d’énergie données dans le Tableau 1. Toutes les valeurs d’énergie données sont des valeurs moyennes par rapport à la fluence. Les systèmes dosimétriques utilisent habituellement des dispositifs électroniques pour l’évaluation des données et sont donc souvent commandés par ordinateur.
