"R" in the numeric designation signifies that the 1987 standard was reaffirmed (recertified) as an American National Standard in 1998 & 2007.  No changes can be made to a standard during reaffirmation.

This standard describes a test program to be used in evaluating biological radiation shielding in nuclear reactor facilities under normal operating conditions including anticipated operational occurrences. The program encompasses examining and testing to be performed before startup and during startup, and testing subsequent to the startup phase.
