Technical Capability Standards for Radiological Detection

The following publications establish technical capability standards for radiological and nuclear detection goals unique to the U.S. Government. The materials augment the national consensus standards established by American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and international consensus standards developed by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC).

The Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction Office (CWMD) publishes these standards in collaboration with National Institute of Standards and Technology. The standards fulfill a requirement of the SAFE Port Act of 2006 publish technical capability standards for radiation detection and non-intrusive imaging systems.

Currently available technical capability standards are accessible as PDF files by clicking on the links below.
