HPS Development of American National Standards

ANSI Developer

ANSI/HPS standards are available to HPS members for no charge and the general public for purchase through our exclusive distributor, IHS, here.


The Health Physics Society (HPS) is an Accredited Standards Developer. The two Accredited Standards Committees (ASC)—N13 and N43—along with the HPS standards coordinator, constitute the HPS standards organization.

The primary scopes of the respective organizations are:

The HPS standards coordinator is concerned with coordination and administration of HPS standards activities involving the HPSSC, N13, and N43.

HPS members may get detailed information on the activities of the Standards Committees in the Members Only Standards section. ANSI/HPS standards are available to HPS members for no charge and the general public for purchase through our exclusive distributor IHS at the following link: http://global.ihs.com/standards.cfm?publisher=HPS&rid=HPS.

  • ANSI N42 - Although not directly affiliated with the HPS, this committee develops standards in the general area of performance specifications for a wide variety of radiation detection and measurement instrumentation. These standards are available for purchase directly from ANSI. Click here to go the ANSI website store, enter "N42" in the Search box, and push "GO" to see a listing of N42 publications.
