IEC 60951-1:2022 is available as IEC 60951-1:2022 RLV which contains the International Standard and its Redline version, showing all changes of the technical content compared to the previous edition.IEC 60951-1:2022 provides general guidance on the design principles and performance criteria for equipment to measure radiation and fluid (gaseous effluents or liquids) radioactivity levels at nuclear facilities during and after design basis accidents (DBA) and design extension conditions (DEC), including severe accident (SA). This document is limited to equipment for continuous monitoring of radioactivity in design basis accidents (DBA), design extension conditions (DEC), including severe accident (SA) and post-accident conditions. The purpose of this document is to lay down general requirements and give examples of acceptable methods for equipment for continuous monitoring of radioactivity within the facility during and after design basis accidents (DBA), design extension conditions (DEC), including severe accident (SA) in nuclear facilities. This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition published in 2009.The main technical changes with regard to the previous edition are as follows. - title modified. - to be consistent with the categorization of the accident condition. - to update the references to new standards published since the second edition. - to update the terms and definitions.
