Derek L. Ho


NIST Handbook 150-4, NVLAP Ionizing Radiation Dosimetry, presents the technical requirements and guidance for the accreditation of laboratories under the NVLAP Ionizing Radiation Dosimetry LAP. The 2019 edition incorporates changes resulting from the release of the newest edition of ISO/IEC 17025:2017, General requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories, and NIST Handbook 150 (2016), as well as editorial improvements. The 2019 edition of NIST Handbook 150-4 supersedes and replaces the 2005 edition.
