IEC 62705:2022 is available as IEC 62705:2022 RLV which contains the International Standard and its Redline version, showing all changes of the technical content compared to the previous edition.IEC 62705:2022 gives requirements for the lifecycle management of radiation monitoring systems (RMS) and gives guidance on the application of existing IEC standards covering the design and qualification of systems and equipment. The purpose of this document is to lay down requirements for the lifecycle management of RMSs and give application guidance. This document is intended to be consistent with the latest versions of International Standards dealing with radiation monitors, sampling of radioactive materials, instruments calibration, hardware and software design, classification, and qualification. This document is applicable to RMSs installed in nuclear facilities intended for use during normal operation, anticipated operational occurrences (AOO), design basis accidents (DBA) and design extension conditions (DEC), including severe accidents (SA). This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2014. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition: - modification of the title. - to be consistent with the categorization of the accident condition. - to update the references to new standards published since the first edition. - to update the terms and definitions.
