As you can see by the spectrum of radiation measurement standards highlighted above, relevant standards cover the use of radiation in medical devices to pest control.  If you work around radiation or just want more information about it, you'll want to review information from the Health Physics Society (HPS).  Their page on radiation basics is a great review of the issues involved.

However, as you can also see, standards on radiation measurement can be developed by any number of organizations.  If you want to make sure that you're reviewing the spectrum of information available, make Document Center your source for standards information.  We've been selling standards since 1982 and have a complete catalog of over 500,000 standards.
