SCHEDULE 4SPECIFIED QUANTITIES FOR THE TRANSPORT OF RADIONUCLIDES

PART I

Table of radionuclides

Radionuclide name, symbolRadionuclide formQuantity (Bq)
Note 1: Values include contributions from daughter nuclides with half-lives less than 10 days.
Note 2: These values apply only to compounds of uranium that take the chemical form of UF6, UO2F2 and UO2(NO3)2 in both normal and accident conditions of transport.
Note 3: These values apply only to compounds of uranium that take the chemical form of O3, UF4, UCl4 and hexavalent compounds other than those specified in Note 2 above in both normal and accident conditions of transport.
Note 4: These values apply to all compounds of uranium other than those specified in Notes 2 and 3 above.
Note 5: These values apply to unirradiated uranium only.
Note 6: In the case of radionuclides not specified elsewhere in this Part, the quantity specified in this entry is to be used unless the Executive has approved some other quantity for that radionuclide.

PART IIQuantity ratios for more than one radionuclide

1.  For the purpose of regulation 3(3), the quantity ratio for more than one radionuclide is the sum of the quotients of the quantity of a radionuclide present Qp divided by the quantity of that radionuclide specified in the appropriate column of Part I of this Schedule Qlim, namely—

2.  In any case where the isotopic composition of a radioactive substance is not known or is only partially known, the quantity ratio for that substance shall be calculated by using the values specified in the appropriate column in Part I for “other radionuclides not listed above” for any radionuclide that has not been identified or where the quantity of a radionuclide is uncertain, unless the employer can show that the use of some other value is appropriate in the circumstances of a particular case, when he may use that value.
