Shipping Radioactive Materials
Off Campus Shipment
The shipping of radioactive materials is regulated domestically as “hazardous materials” by the U.S. Department of Transportation and internationally as “dangerous goods” by the International Air Transportation Association (IATA). Prior to the shipment date, University EHS must be contacted to arrange the shipment. Fill out the Hazardous Materials Shipment Request form completely and submit the request by pushing the “Submit to EHS” button on the bottom of the form. Upon receiving the request, EHS ensures that the appropriate pre-shipment requirements are completed.
These requirements include:
On Campus Movement of Radioactive Materials
Never transport/move radioactive materials, even to an adjacent building, without first contacting EHS. Prior consultation, approved packaging, and occasionally shipping papers are required for such activities.
Consult Section 8 of the Radiation Safety Manual for further information.
