Standards for dosimetry for radiation processing developed and published by:

the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM)
100 Barr Harbor Drive, West Conshohocken, PA 19428, USA

Those with an ISO reference were adopted by the International Organisation for Standards, ISO.


ISO-ASTM 51204 Practice for dosimetry in Gamma irradiation facilities for food processing
ISO-ASTM 51261 Guide for selection and calibration of dosimetry systems for radiation processing.
ISO-ASTM 51276 Practice for the use of a polymethylmethacrylate dosimetry system
ISO-ASTM 51702 Practice for dosimetry in a gamma irradiation facility for radiation processing.
ISO-ASTM 51707 Guide for estimating uncertainties in dosimetry for radiation processing.
ISO-ASTM 51607 Practice for use of the alanine-epr dosimetry system
ASTM E2303 Guide for absorbed dose mapping in radiation processing facilities

Other relevent standards are:

EN-ISO 11137-1
Sterilisation of health care products. Radiation-part 1. Requirements for development, validation and routine control of a sterilisation process for medical devices.

EN-ISO 11137-3
Sterilisation of health care products. Radiation-part 3. Guidance on dosimetric aspects.

In this standard, dosimetry procedures related to the development, validation and routine control of a radiation sterilisation process are described.
