[ RadSafe ] Baggage Inspection X-ray Systems

Mike, there are several guides and then some real regulations that
apply.  The regulations are from FDA, for cabinet xray systems.  There
are also state regulations that apply if you are not under Federal
jurisdiction at the inspection site. Then there are some ANSI standards
for the general performance/imaging criteria and the rad safety.  These
are all currently under revision.  If you give me a call at 858 826
9664, I can direct you to the specific ones for your operation.  I am
the radiation safety officer at SAIC, and I am on several of the ANSI
standards for this area.

Dear Radsafer's,


Can someone direct me to the standard that specifies the Health Physics
requirements for baggage inspection X-ray systems like RAPISCAN,
DYNASCAN, etc, that use a belt to carry the item to be inspected through
an X-ray inspection area?  I'm most interested in seeing what leakage
monitoring and interlock/warning system testing and inspection
requirements are specified. Thanks!
