Study Notes

Transporting Radioactive Materials

  • Category I radioactive materials should be transported in a specially designed vehicle, attended by a trained escort, and must be accompanied by a radiation protection officer.
  • Category III radioactive materials must be labeled with a "Type III" marking, indicating the presence of radioactive materials, and a UN number, which identifies the specific type of radioactive material.

Requirements for Transportation

  • Category II radioactive materials require a transport index, which is a numerical value that indicates the level of radiation and is used to determine the safety measures required for transportation.

Rail Transportation

  • Category III radioactive materials should be preferably transported in a closed rail wagon, which provides additional protection against radiation exposure and prevents accidental release of the material.
