IEEE N42.43-2021

The operational and performance requirements for mobile radiation monitors (MRMs) used in homeland security applications are specified in this standard. MRMs may be operated while in motion or while in a fixed location. The PDF of this standard is available at no cost compliments of the partnership with the Department of Homeland Security Domestic Nuclear Detection Office and the IEEE GET Program https://ieeexplore.ieee.org/browse/standards/get-program/page/series?id=83

IEEE/ANSI N42.34-2021

Performance specifications and testing methods for the evaluation of handheld instruments (also known as radionuclide identification devices or RIDs) used for the detection and identification of radionuclides, which emit gamma rays and, in some cases, neutrons, are contained in this standard. The specifications for general, radiological, environmental, electromagnetic, and mechanical performances are given and the corresponding testing methods are described. The documentation to be provided by the manufacturer is listed as part of the requirements. Informative annexes that provide guidance for the implementation of this standard are also included.

IEEE/ANSI N42.53-2021

The operational and performance requirements for backpack-based radiation-detection systems (BRDs) used in homeland security applications are specified in this standard. BRDs are typically worn by the user during operations to detect and possibly identify radiological and nuclear material.

IEEE 2411-2021

Guidance to prepare, plan, and conduct human factors performance-based validation of a component, sub-system, or system prior to its placement in-service, to assess reasonable confidence of compliance with functional and operational requirements is provided in this document.

IEEE/ANSI N42.34a-2020

Performance specifications and testing methods for the evaluation of handheld instruments (also known as radionuclide identification devices or RIDs) used for the detection and identification of radionuclides, which emit gamma rays and, in some cases, neutrons, are contained in this standard. The specifications for general, radiological, environmental, electromagnetic and mechanical performances are given and the corresponding testing methods are described. The documentation to be provided by the manufacturer is listed as part of the requirements. Normative and informative annexes that provide guidance for the implementation of this standard are also included.

IEEE 317-1971

This document prescribes the mechanical, electrical, and test requirements for the design, construction, and installation of electrical penetration assemblies in containment structures for stationary nuclear fueled power generating stations. The electrical conductor and insulation characteristics· of external circuits which connect to penetration assemblies are beyond the scope of these criteria. If there should be any conflict between this document and those documents referenced herein, this document shall take precedence over the referenced documents.

IEEE/IEC 63260-2020

A structured framework for the incorporation of human reliability analysis (HRA) into probabilistic risk assessments (PRAs) is provided in this guide. To enhance the analysis of human/system interactions in PRAs, to help ensure reproducible conclusions, and to standardize the documentation of such assessments are the purposes of this guide. To do this, a specific HRA framework is developed from standard practices. The HRA framework is neutral with respect to specific HRA methods.

IEEE/IEC 60980-344-2020

This International Standard describes methods for establishing seismic qualification procedures that will yield quantitative data to demonstrate that the equipment can meet its performance requirements. This document is applicable to electrical, mechanical, instrumentation and control equipment/components that are used in nuclear facilities. This document provides methods and documentation requirements for seismic qualification of equipment to verify the equipment's ability to perform its specified performance requirements during and/or after specified seismic demands. This document does not specify seismic demand or performance requirements. Other aspects, relating to quality assurance, selection of equipment, and design and modification of systems, are not part of…

IEEE/NACE 2655-2018

This standard provides requirements to:(1) help utilities identify structures that may be high risk for above-grade corrosion; (2) inspect the selected structures; (3) categorize the condition of structures based on corrosion degradation; (4) prioritize structures requiring additional inspection based on those findings; and (5) help identify next steps as required.
