Such instrumentation shall be able to measure a range from 2 millirem (0.02 mSv) per hour through 1 rem (0.01 Sv) per hour.
(2) Radiation survey instruments used to establish dose rates shall be calibrated:
(a) At intervals not to exceed 6 months and after each instrument servicing other than battery replacement;
(b) At energies and geometries appropriate for use;
(c) To demonstrate accuracy within 20% of the true radiation level at each point checked;
(d) For linear scale instruments, at two points located approximately 1/3 and 2/3 of full-scale on each scale; for logarithmic scale instruments, at midrange of each decade and at two points at least one decade apart; and for digital instruments, at three points between 2 millirem (0.02 mSv) per hour and 1 rem (0.01 Sv) per hour; and
(e) By a person licensed by the department, another agreement state, licensing state or the NRC.
