FR Recognition Number 14-552
Standard
ISO ASTM 51818 Fourth edition 2020-06
Practice for dosimetry in an electron beam facility for radiation processing at energies between 80 and 300 keV
Scope/Abstract
This practice covers dosimetric procedures to be followed in installation qualification, operational qualification and performance qualification (IQ, OQ, PQ), and routine processing at electron beam facilities to ensure that the product has been treated with an acceptable range of absorbed doses. Other procedures related to IQ, OQ, PQ, and routine product processing that may influence absorbed dose in the product are also discussed.
The electron beam energy range covered in this practice is between 80 and 300 keV, generally referred to as low energy.
Dosimetry is only one component of a total quality assurance program for an irradiation facility. Other measures may be required for specific applications such as medical device sterilization and food preservation.
Extent of Recognition

Rationale for Recognition
This standard is relevant to medical devices and is recognized on its scientific and technical merit and/or because it supports existing regulatory policies.
