PURCHASING OF RADIOACTIVE MATERIAL

  •  

Radioactive materials will be ordered only from a manufacturer/distributor who holds a valid NRC or Agreement State license. This policy will ensure complete compliance with NRC and State regulations and with the conditions of our license.

   
  •  

All requests for radioactive materials must be approved by the Radiation Safety Officer (RSO) or his/her designee prior to the order being placed. All order requests must be signed by the Principal Investigator or his/her designee authorized to utilize the radioactive material. The individual ordering, must have authorization for possession and use of the particular radionuclide, activity and chemical form ordered. Approval will only be given for requests that are in compliance with our NRC/PaDEP license.

   
  •  
Radioactive packages will only be accepted during normal working hours and must be delivered to the Griffith Hall (GH) or McNeil Science and Technology (STC) Central Stockrooms.
   
The RSO or the Central Stockroom Manager must be notified in advance of any transfers or donations of radioactive materials to ensure proper licenses are exchanged. These must also be packaged properly and delivered directly to the Stockrooms.
