Radioactive Waste

The process of identifying the contents of a shipment of hazardous materials through specific lists is known as the manifesting of hazardous materials. For radioactive waste shipments, the specific document used is known as the radioactive waste manifest.

This document serves multiple purposes:
  1. Identifies the radioactive materials
  2. Identifies the chemical constituents by weight
  3. Certifies that the radioactive wastes have been packaged according to the requirements of the UAB Radioisotope and Radiation Safety Committee
It should be noted that this policy applies only to radioactive solids, chemicals or biologicals. For non-radioactive chemicals or biologicals, refer to either the UAB Chemical Safety or Biosafety Manuals.
