Check IATA regs first – most airlines say no to any radioactives on
checked/personal luggage.

The european law has the same exemption levels that you can find at the IAEA
BSS (#115), so check there if the activities or specific activities are
lower and if so, you should have no problem (as exemption level assures).


Anyway I would consult first to the air company in order to accomplish their
requirements (if any).

Asunto: [ RadSafe ] Exempt Sources Transport to EU


Hi Group:


I'm trying to decide if I should try to take my exempt sealed calibration

sources for my spectrometer with me to France. I'd appreciate any advice

from any EU colleagues.  I still have all the paperwork on them (receipt of

purchase, etc.).  I keep them in a lead shielded container.
