Transfer and Shipment of Radioactive Materials

On Campus Transfers

  • Radioactive materials transfers are only permitted between authorized users. Transfer recipients must be authorized for the radionuclide, chemical form and quantity of material they wish to receive.  EHS must receive a copy of the On Campus Radioactive Materials Transfer Form upon completion.  For any on campus transfer that requires vehicle transportation, contact Radiation Safety.

Off Campus Transfers

  • The shipment of radioactive material must comply with Department of Transportation (DOT) and IATA regulations. EHS Radiation Safety staff are the only individuals on campus authorized to ship radioactive materials off campus.  EHS requires advanced notice to prepare and ship radioactive materials.
