Radioactive material surface contaminated objects (SCO-1), non-fissile or fissile-excepted UN 2913

Description

Radioactivity of SCO-1 is low. The entry includes solid objects of non-radioactive material having a radioactive material distributed on its surfaces which:

1. the non-fixed contamination on the accessible surface, averaged over 300cm2 (or the area of the surface if less than 300cm2), does not exceed 4 Bq/cm2 for beta and gamma emitters and low-toxicity alpha emitter, or 0.4 Bq/cm2 for all other alpha emitters;

2. the fixed contamination on the accessible surface, averaged over 300cm2 (or the area of the surface if less than 300cm2), does not exceed 4X10(4) bq/cm2 for beta and gamma emitters and low-toxicity alpha emitters, or 4x10(3) Bq/cm2 for all alpha emitters; and

3. the non-fixed contamination plus the fixed contamination on the inaccessible surface, averaged over 300cm2 (or the area of the surface is less than 300cm2), does not exceed 4x10(4) Bq/cm2 for beta and gamma emitters, or 4 x 10(3) Bq/cm2 for all the alpha emitters.
