"R" in the numeric designation signifies that the 2007 standard was reaffirmed (recertified) as an American National Standard in 2012.  No changes can be made to a standard during reaffirmation.

This standard provides criteria for minimizing risks to personnel during emergency response to a nuclear criticality accident outside reactors.  This standard applies to those facilities for which a criticality accident alarm system, as specified in American National Standard Criticality Accident Alarm System, ANSI/ANS-8.3 1997 (R2003), is in use.1  This standard does not apply to nuclear power plant sites or to licensed research reactor facilities, which are addressed by other standards.
