Part 750: Transportation of Radioactive Materials
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission and the Department of Transportation regulate the transportation of radioactive material. These regulations specify the requirements for packaging, labeling, marking, manifesting, and surveying radioactive materials being prepared for shipment. Therefore, no radioactive materials may be transported beyond the property boundary of any University of Idaho facility without the approval of the radiation safety officer or designee.
Before transferring any radioactive material to another organization, the radiation safety officer must have in possession a copy of the organization's radioactive materials license prior to the shipment of that material. The transportation of radioactive materials between on-campus facilities must be in a manner that does not permit the release of material in any form to the environment or unnecessary exposure to personnel, even in the event of a minor accident.
All personnel who transport radioactive materials on public roads must receive Department of Transportation training in the shipment of radioactive materials. Please see Part 600.20(F).
