Title

How to I ship items to SLAC that are activated or have been within an accelerator facility?

Question

​How to I ship items to SLAC that are activated or have been within an accelerator facility?

Answer

​Radioactive items can be received by SLAC's Radiation Protection department. Even if an item is surveyed to be below background, if it has been in an accelerator facility, it should also be sent to the Radiation Protection department. Standards across labs (and countries) can vary.

Please coordinate through Christine Clarke (cclarke@slac.stanford.edu) to relay the following information and make arrangements:

1) Who owns the device?

2) How long will the device remain at SLAC?
3) What is the radiological nature of the device (surveys, measurements etc.)?
4) Contact name for further questions.

You cannot send radioactive material to SLAC until you get approval from Radiation Protection.
