Standard history

This document provides methodology and criteria to qualify the dosimetry system at workplaces where
it is used. The criteria in this document apply to dosimetry systems which do not meet the criteria with
regard to energy and direction dependent responses described in ISO 21909-1.
The qualification of the dosimetry system at workplace aims to demonstrate that:
— either, the non-conformity of the dosimetry system to some of the requirements on the energy or
direction dependent responses defined in ISO 21909-1 does not lead to significant discrepancies in
the dose determination for a certain workplace field;
— or, that the correction factor or function used for this specific studied workplace enables the
dosimetry system to accurately determine the conventional dose value with uncertainties similar
to the ones given in ISO 21909-1.

The methodologies to characterize the work place field in order to perform the qualification of the
dosimetry system are given in Annex A. Annex B is complementary as it gives the practical methods to
follow, once one methodology is chosen.
The provider of the dosimetry system shall provide the type test results corresponding to ISO 21909-1.
However, when the dosimetry system to be qualified does not comply with all the criteria of ISO 21909-1
dealing with the energy and angle dependence of the response, some tests of the ISO 21909-1 can be not
