Activity Limits For Excepted Packages

Excepted packages may only contain limited quantities of radioactive material, which are so small that the potential radiological hazards that might pertain during transport are very low. There are no test requirements for excepted packages and therefore it must be assumed that in any form of accident the package may fail completely and that the contents may be dispersed. The radiation level at any point on the surface of an excepted package cannot exceed 5 ╬╝Sv/h to ensure that any radiation dose to members of the public would be insignificant and that any sensitive photographic material in close proximity would not be damaged.
