    Examples of material transported in Type B packaging include spent nuclear fuel, high-level radioactive waste, and high concentrations of other radioactive material such as cesium and cobalt. Life-endangering amounts of radioactive material are required to be transported in Type B Packages. The shipper of a hazardous material must certify on the shipping paper that the product is in a proper container & that all of the papers & placards are correct. An exception is when: A) the receiver is the same company is the shipper B) the shipper is a private carrier carrying its own product C) the trip will not cross a state line.

    A. Parts C, E, G, I, L, N, and Q of these regulations, provide for the licensing of radioactive material and the assignment of fees for such licenses.1/ No person shall manufacture, produce, receive, possess, use, transfer, own or acquire radioactive material except as authorized in a specific or general license. Hazardous Materials Practice Test 1. You are behind the wheel of a truck carrying a shipment of hazardous material. The shipping papers must be in a pouch on the drivers door or in: A) A box under the driver’s seat. B) Clear view and within your reach. C) The truck’s glove box. Size: KB.

The LRSO will perform an inspection of all packages arriving with Radioactive Labels (White I, Yellow II or Yellow III) affixed to the package. Radioactive labels indicate that the package contains a quantity of radioactive material equal to or greater than a “Type A” quantity as described in 49 CFR and requires an inspection IAW 10File Size: KB.

Uncapher, G.F. Hohnstreiter. Radioactive materials are among the many kinds of hazardous substances emergency responders might have to deal with in a transportation accident. Because strict packaging requirements are used in the shipment of radioactive materials, accidental spills or releases of these substances seldom occur.

Abstract. Packaging, transport, and storage of radioactive materials must be done in a safe and secure manner. The varied physical characteristics of radioactive materials, coupled with unique chemical attributes, require isolation and specific protection schemes to ensure safe operations as well as protection of human health and the environment.Introduction.

The goal of designing a package for the transport of radioactive material is to protect health and environment. The protection is among other factors achieved by requiring prevention of damage caused by heat (IAEA, b).This chapter describes the basics of heat transfer, regulatory aspects concerning the thermal design of a package, thermal design features, material Author: Frank Wille, Marko Nehrig, Martin Feldkamp.Package performance—the ability of a transportation package 1 to maintain a high level of containment effectiveness in long-term normal use and under extreme mechanical forces and thermal loading conditions (i.e., thermomechanical conditions) generated during severe accidents—is a crucial issue for transportation safety and key to understanding and quantifying transportation risks.
