Front cover - RPS No. 13 Code of Practice and Safety Guide for Safe Use of Fixed Radiation Gauges (2007)

The Code establishes requirements for adoption by Commonwealth, State and Territory jurisdictions that will provide a system for the safe use of fixed radiation gauges that contain radioactive sources, X-ray tubes or neutron generator tubes.
