Recalibration Intervals for Radiation Detection Instruments
Leticia Pibida, Ben Estes, Manuel Mejias, Gladys Klemic
In this work we provide a summary of the National Conference of Standards Laboratories (NCSL) Recommended Practice RP-1 calibration interval analysis method, and examples of the method applied to three sets of available NIST data (two models of radiation survey meters and an electronic dosimeter). Information is provided for how to develop control charts to monitor individual instruments' performance over time in order to determine when instrument requires recalibration; examples are provided for a survey meter and a gamma-ray spectrometer.
