Radiation detectors are widely used in homeland security, nuclear emergency, environmental monitoring and other fields, as a significant tool for prevention of nuclear proliferation, reducing the threat of nuclear terrorism and protection of national security. In this paper, the performance testing and evaluation system of radiation detectors by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is introduced. The National Nuclear Detection Office (DNDO) established Rad/Nuc Detector Evaluation and Reporting (GRaDER) Program to evaluate commercial Rad/Nuc detection equipment against ANSI / IEEE N42 consensus standards adopted by the Department of Homeland Security, using National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program (NVLAP) lab accreditation process to confirm test lab capability and competence. These can be significantly used for reference for the similar work in China. ©, 2014, Atomic Energy Press. All right reserved. Source
