This standard has been revised by ISO 1709:2018
Specifies the basic principles and limitations which govern operations with fissile materials. Describes general criticality safety criteria for equipment design and for the development of operating controls. Does not cover quality assurance requirements or details of equipment or operational procedures, does not deal with the effects of radiation on man or materials.These criteria apply to operations with fissile materials outside nuclear reactors but within the boundaries of nuclear facilities.
