Radioactive Materials Shipments



Radioisotopes (both as substances and as a part of instruments, devices or installations) every year get a wider application in medicine, scientific research, safety systems and other various branches of industry. The exploitation of radioactive sources is a complicated task which requires from the operator measures of record keeping, controlling, physical defending and creating special structures inside the company.

Obtaining equipment that is using radioisotopes often becomes a headache right from the moment of signing the delivery contract. If the deal is prepared by employees who are not specialists in exploitation of radioisotopes the budget would surely be underestimated and the putting-into-operation program would surely be developed and accepted later than planned. Lack of required permissive documents may lead to a failure of whole enterprise development schedule.

Russian manufacturers of radioisotope sources and equipment who don't have experience in exporting face similar problems.

According to the fact that half-life of some isotopes does not exceed several days, the question of timely delivery becomes tightly connected with the cost of the products. Any unanalyzed factor is a serious risk for the enterprise, and involvement of a specialized contractor into the job allows to reduce this risk to sensible limits.
