PUR 401–03: Radioactive Materials
To establish guidelines for the purchase and handling of radioactive materials
The Radiation Safety Office is responsible for processing all radioactive materials purchased and received on campus.
All requests for radioactive material must be approved by the radiation safety officer before submission to Purchasing and Business Services.
All radioactive material received on campus must be processed through the Radiation Safety Office. Shipments to the university must be routed through the Radiation Safety Office before being delivered to the using department.
Purchasing personnel responsible for the purchase of radioactive materials should be familiar with Regulations for Control of Radioactive Material (January 1987) prepared by the Radiation Protection Facility. An individual purchase order (PC) will be established for each request for radioactive material.
