RS ASTM F 1468-04a: 2010
Standard practice for evaluation of metallic weapons detectors for controlled access search and screening


1.1 This practice covers methods for the evaluation of walk-through metal weapons detectors and criteria
for testing metal detection performance.
1.2 This practice specifies certain health, safety, and human factors criteria pertaining to the usage of the
detection equipment.
1.3 This practice requires the use of non-standardized (user-supplied) test objects and test equipment.
Evaluations made using the procedures outlined in this practice can be used for comparative evaluations only
if the tests are made with the same equipment and test objects.
1.4 This practice is intended for use by manufacturers and evaluators of electromagnetic field devices used
for screening persons entering into controlled access areas. It is not intended to set performance nor limit or
constrain operating technologies, nor is it a document for use by individual operators or users of such
equipment at specific access control points.
1.5 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. Other units given in parentheses are
for information only.
1.6 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is
the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and
determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. For a specific hazards statement, see warning
note in 12.2.5.
