A radioactive substance is a substance, including any article that has been manufactured or subjected to any artificial treatment or process, which contains more than the maximum prescribed concentration of any radioactive element.
An irradiating apparatus is any apparatus capable of producing ionising radiation of any prescribed type, or capable of accelerating atomic particles under any prescribed conditions (such as X-ray equipment).
