This standard presents data recommended for computing the biologically relevant dosimetric quantity in neutron and gamma-ray radiation fields.  Specifically, this standard is intended for use by shield designers to calculate effective dose equivalent.  Values are given for effective dose equivalent per unit fluence for neutron energies from 1eV to 14 MeV and for gamma-ray energies from 0.01 to 12 MeV.  Establishing maximum permissible exposure limits is outside the scope of this standard.
