static eliminators

     You want to look at 10 CFR 31.3 which allows up to 500 uCi per 
     device for the generally licensed static eliminators .  They're 
     not included under 10 CFR 31.5 which requires the leak testing 
     you refer to.

     I have some questions regarding the static eliminators 
     (Staticmaster) for
     microgram scales.
     If they are 250 uCi ea. Why are they exempt? (exempt quantity is 
     100uCi or
     less for 210Po) Don't they require leak testing?( sealed sources 
     alpha emitting material >10 uCi do).
