Classification: Saudi Aramco Company General Use
Looking for a bit of clarification, whilst searching for the exemption level for a C-14 source I found some conflicting numbers.

NRC:10 CFR Solid & Liquid:           8 x 10-3µCi  (4.63MBq)
IAEA: GSR Part 3:                              1 x 107Bq (270µCi)
Euratom BSS COM (2011)             1 Bg g-1 (27pCi g-1)

??? Am I missing something here???
