You will need to comply with this code if you are the holder of a source or facility licence and deal with controlled facilities, controlled apparatus and controlled materials. A facility, apparatus or material is controlled if it requires strict operational procedures for safety and use in order to minimise harm from radiation or radioactive waste.
The code applies to persons dealing with a sealed radioactive source. A sealed radioactive source means radioactive material that is permanently sealed in a capsule or closely bonded in a solid form.
The code sets out the security requirements to be implemented by persons dealing with a radioactive source with the goal of decreasing the likelihood of unauthorised entry or acquisition of that source.
