Abstract 

ISO 8769:2010 specifies the characteristics of reference sources of radioactive surface contamination, traceable to national measurement standards, for the calibration of surface contamination monitors. ISO 8769:2010 relates to alpha-emitters, beta-emitters and photon emitters of maximum photon energy not greater than 1,5 MeV. It does not describe the procedures involved in the use of these reference sources for the calibration of surface contamination monitors.

ISO 8769:2010 specifies also reference radiation for the calibration of surface contamination monitors, which takes the form of adequately characterized large area sources specified, without exception, in terms of surface emission rates, the evaluation of these quantities being traceable to national standards.
