"R" in the numeric designation signifies that the 1983 standard was reaffirmed (recertified) as an American National Standard in 1988, 1995, 2001 2010 & 2017. No changes can be made to a standard during reaffirmation.

This standard provides safety guidance for conducting subcritical neutron-multiplication measurements where physical protection of personnel against the consequences of a criticality accident is not provided. The objectives of in situ measurements are either to confirm an adequate safety margin or to improve an estimate of such a margin.
