Rule 3701:1-50-02 | Purpose and scope.


(A) This chapter establishes requirements for packaging, preparation for shipment, and transportation of radioactive material.

(B) The packaging and transport of radioactive material are also subject to other chapters of the Administrative Code and to the regulations of other agencies (such as the DOT, the United States postal service and the United States nuclear regulatory commission) having jurisdiction over means of transport. The requirements of this chapter are in addition to, and not in substitution for, other requirements.

(C) This chapter applies to any licensee authorized by specific or general license issued by the director to receive, possess, use, or transfer licensed material, if the licensee delivers that material to a carrier for transport, transports the material outside the site of usage as specified in the Ohio license, or transports that material on public highways. No provision of this chapter authorizes possession of licensed material.

(D) Exemptions from the requirement for license in rule 3701:1-50-04 of the Administrative Code are specified in rule 3701:1-50-06 of the Administrative Code. General licenses for which no package approval is required are issued in rules 3701:1-50-10 to 3701:1-50-12 of the Administrative Code. The general license in rule 3701:1-50-07 of the Administrative Code requires that an United States nuclear regulatory commission CoC or other package approval be issued for the package to be used under the general license. The transport of licensed material or delivery of licensed material to a carrier for transport is subject to the operating controls and procedures requirements of rules 3701:1-50-15 to 3701:1-50-19 and rule 3701:1-50-23 of the Administrative Code, to the quality assurance requirements of rule 3701:1-50-24 of the Administrative Code or United States nuclear regulatory commission, and to the general provisions of rules 3701:1-50-01 to 3701:1-50-05 of the Administrative Code, including DOT regulations referenced in rule 3701:1-50-05 of the Administrative Code.

(E) These rules apply to any person required to obtain a CoC or an approved compliance plan from the United States nuclear regulatory commission pursuant to 10 C.F.R. 76 (as in effect on the effective date of this rule) if the person delivers radioactive material to a common or contract carrier for transport or transports the material outside the confines of the person's plant or other authorized place of use.
