ASTM ISO/ASTM51539 - 05(2013)

Standard Guide for Use of Radiation-Sensitive Indicators

Status : Current   Published : August 2013



1.1 This guide covers procedures for using radiationsensitive indicators (referred to hereafter as indicators) in radiation processing. These indicators may be labels, papers, inks or packaging materials which undergo a visual change when exposed to ionizing radiation (1-5).2

1.2 The purpose for using indicators is to determine visually whether or not a product has been irradiated, rather than to measure different dose levels.

1.3 Indicators are not dosimeters and shall not be used as a substitute for proper dosimetry. Information about dosimetry systems for radiation processing is provided in other ASTM and ISO/ASTM documents (see ISO/ASTM Guide 51261).

1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
