Be sure to review 21 CFR, Part 1020 (Performance Standards for Ionizing Radiation Emitting Products); there are FDA standards applicable to those units.  You can access the regs from the web, and I'll email you a condensed Word version in a separate message; my version is easier to read.

Dear Radsafers,

Can anyone direct me to the safety standard that best applies to the
X-ray machines that are used to screen luggage, packages, etc. I'm most
interested in seeing what survey requirements are recommended, and at
what frequency.  Thanks in advance.
