1 Scope and object
This clause of Part 1 is applicable, except as follows:
1.1 Scope
1.1.1 Equipment included in scope
Delete the first paragraph.
Replace the second paragraph (above items a) to c)) with the following new text:
This part of IEC 61010 specifies particular safety requirements for cabinet X-ray systems, which
fall under any of categories a), b) or c) below.
Add the two following new paragraphs at the end of the subclause:
Equipment covered by this document can be both PROTECTED EQUIPMENT or PARTIALLY
PROTECTED EQUIPMENT, with X-ray generator voltage up to 500 kV.
A cabinet X-ray system is a system that contains an X-ray tube installed in a cabinet, which,
independently of existing architectural structures except the floor on which it may be placed, is
intended to contain at least that portion of a material being irradiated, provide radiation
attenuation and prevent operator access to the radiation beam, during generation of X-radiation.
These cabinet X-ray systems are used in industrial, commercial, and public environments, for
example, to inspect materials, to analyse materials, and to screen baggage.

1.1.2 Equipment excluded from scope
Add the following new items to the list:
aa) Equipment intended to apply X-radiation to humans or animals;
bb) Equipment incorporating an X-ray tube but not incorporating complete shielding against
X-radiation HAZARDS, such as:
– equipment intended to be used within a shielded room which excludes personnel during
– equipment intended to be used with separate portable or temporary shielding;
– equipment intended to produce an emerging beam of X-radiation.

1.2 Object
1.2.1 Aspects included in scope
Add the following new text to the end of the first paragraph:
This part of IEC 61010 specifies requirements for the design and methods of construction of
cabinet X-ray systems to provide adequate protection for OPERATORS, bystanders, trained
service personnel and the surrounding area against unintentionally-emitted X-radiation and from
mechanical HAZARDS related to their conveyors.
