Purchasing and Disposal of Radioactive substances

The RSC needs to approve, record and monitor all radioactive substances which are held on University grounds, together with the Faculty of Science Technical Support Team. To assist with this, it is imperative that the procedures contained in the Application to Acquire forms are followed carefully. The Faculty of Science Technical Officers will then keep track of all radioactive substances which have been used and stored in each laboratory.

Note: No orders are to be placed without prior approval of the RSC and budget centre managers using the formal processes in place at the University.

Refer to the relevant acquisition and disposal forms and the Radiation Management Plan for full details.
