Committee Draft
ISO/CD 16659-2
A draft is being reviewed by the committee.


The standard ISO 16659-1 is the general part of a set of standards on the different in-situ test methods for iodine traps, describing common general provisions applicable to all methods. The current standard ISO 16659-2 presents the in-situ testing method for measuring the efficiency of iodine traps using a radioactive methyl iodine method (CH3I). This standard present the specific provisions according to the expected role of this iodine trap, requirements about workers protections, requirement about environment protection to take into account during these tests.
