What sources does the NORM Student Kit require special shipping? Posted on April 17, 2018July 3, 2019 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 them. 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.
