Subject: [ RadSafe ] Baggage Inspection X-ray Systems

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!
