"R" in the numeric designation signifies that the 2000 standard was reaffirmed (recertified) as an American National Standard in 2007 & 2012. No changes can be made to a standard during reaffirmation.

This standard provides for the safe conduct of critical experiments. Such experiments study neutron behavior in a fission device where the energy produced is insufficient to require auxiliary cooling, and the power history is such that the inventory of long-lived fission products is insignificant.
