Radiation Alert® Student NORM Kit

Student NORM Kit - Student Check SourcesDescription of Materials / The six samples in our NORM (Naturally Occurring Radioactive Material) Student Kit contain tiny quantities of radioactive material obtainable commercially by anyone who wants to purchase them. No radioactive material license is required to possess or transport this NORM kit. The quantities are individually and collectively well below the IATA Activity Limit for an Exempt Consignment (from IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations Table 10.3.A) and U.S. Department of Transportation regulations 49 CFR 173.436). No shipping label of any kind is required, no Declaration for Dangerous Goods, and no packaging requirements are specified. These materials are exempt from all international and United States shipping requirements. No radioactive materials license is required. This is a great collection of student check sources for learning about ionizing radiation.
