IEC 63085:2021 provides technical performance requirements, testing methods, requirements for operational performance and accompanying documents, packaging, transportation and storage conditions for the system of spectral identification of liquids in transparent and semitransparent containers (hereinafter referred to as “system”), based on the method of inelastic (Raman) light scattering by molecules.
This document applies both to stationary and hand-held systems; geometric and mass parameters are not concerned in the tests. This document is applicable to substance identification testing criteria as well as verification, approval and operating criteria of the system. Since this document considers only the functionality of Raman analyzers and their ability to identify single- or multicomponent fluids, it is equally suitable for verifying the Raman analyzers assigned to security screening of threats, inspection of medical solutions, liquid chemicals, etc.

IEC 61322:2020 applies to installed dose equivalent rate meters, warning assemblies and monitors, as defined below. It covers equipment intended to measure neutron radiation in dose equivalent rates in the energy region between thermal and 20 MeV for the purposes of radiation protection.
Assemblies of this type are commonly defined as area radiation monitors. They are normally employed to determine continuously the radiological situation in working areas in which the radiation field may change with time, for example, nuclear power plants, particle accelerators, high-activity laboratories, fuel reprocessing plants, etc., and provide alarms when the radiation field goes outside predetermined limits.
The assemblies considered in this document comprise at least:
a detector assembly, which may, for example, consist of a detector probe (for thermal neutrons such as BF3 proportional counter, 3He proportional counter, 6LiI(Tl) scintillation detector, etc.) and a moderating and absorbing medium surrounding the detector;
a processing assembly, which may be fitted into a centralized panel, which, in the case of warning assemblies and monitors, provides signal outputs and contacts capable of activating alarm or other trip circuits;
alternatively, the case when all the processing electronics are placed within the detection unit (so called "smart blocks") may be considered. In this case the functions of the processing assembly will be composed of only the indication, the providing signal outputs and contacts.
