"R" in the numeric designation signifies that the 2002 standard was reaffirmed (recertified) as an American National Standard in 2008.  No changes can be made to a standard during reaffirmation.

It is the purpose of this standard to provide criteria for 1) determination of the energy allocation among the principal particles and photons produced in fission, both prompt and delayed; 2) adoption of appropriate treatment of heavy charged particle and electron slowing down in matter; 3) determination of the spatial energy deposition rates resulting from the interactions of neutrons; 4) calculation of the spatial energy deposition rates resulting from the various interactions of photons with matter; and 5) presentation of the results of such computations, including verification of accuracy and specification of uncertainty.
