Shipping samples under DOT HM-230 Final Rule on Trasportation ofRadioactive Material

After review of this rule, the change in definition of radioactive material, would require Class 7 shipping requirements for samples previously not regulated by DOT or NRC (2000 pCi/g)  for the purposes of shipment if the concentration of the sample might exceed the exempt concentrations listed in Table of Exempt Material (173.436).

Is there any exemptions for small quantities, such as soil samples and air filters that have a chance of exceeding the exempt quantities?

Any help on this issue would be greatly appreciated.
