Abstract: This report is Deliverable D1 of the EMPIR project 14SIP07 "DigitalStandard", which corresponds to Deliverable 1 of the JRC work package 3883 "DiSNU".) The use of digital data acquisition for the detection and measurement of radioactivity is increasing over the years since it offers advantages over data acquisition with conventional modular systems. Modern digital systems sample the signal directly from the radiation detector at a high rate and present data in a digital manner to computer systems for further processing and analysis. However, there currently is no standard for the format of the data presented by such systems, which hinders the interoperability between hardware for data acquisition and software for data analysis. The need for such a standard has been identified earlier by the FP7 EMRP MetroFission project and confirmed by CEN/TC 391 in the frame of Commission mandate M/487 to the European Standardisation Organisations. In the Horizon2020 EMPIR DigitalStandard project, a consortium of four EU Member States has developed a preliminary draft international standard under the lead of JRC, who submitted it together with a New Work Item Proposal to the IEC/TC 45 "Nuclear Instrumentation". The proposal to develop the standard has been accepted, a project team has been appointed by the TC 45 National Committees and a liaison category A has been established between JRC and IEC/TC 45. The liaison officer will lead the project to develop the new standard. Forecast publication date of the standard is March 2019. The first Committee Draft should be finalised and prepared for circulation to the IEC/TC 45 National Committees by October 2016.
