ISO 6980-3:2006 describes procedures for calibrating and determining the response of dosemeters and doserate meters in terms of the International Commission on Radiation Units and Measurements (ICRU) operational quantities, that is, the directional dose equivalent and the personal dose equivalent, for radiation protection purposes.

In addition to the description of calibration procedures, this part of ISO 6980-3:2006 includes recommendations for appropriate phantoms and the way to determine appropriate conversion coefficients. Guidance is provided on the statement of measurement uncertainties and the preparation of calibration records and certificates.
