The report presents the findings of a study conducted during 1969 to determine the need for developing standards for the use of selected nonmedical electronic products for commercial and industrial purposes. Three classes of products were investigated: industrial radiographic and fluoroscopic x-ray units, particle accelerators, and analytical x-ray equipment. For each category the equipment, its typical uses, and the attendant radiation hazards are described, and radiation safety measures are discussed. Existing guidelines and controls for each class of equipment are presented, and incidents involving radiation exposure are reviewed. The need for standards for the use of the equipment is also discussed. (Author)
