There is some radioactive powder that is currently in a lab storage closet. It has been shielded with lead plates in a metal filing cabinet, and is following regulations. However, we would like to remove the item from the premises.  Is there anyone who knows of a special facility to dispose of this item? Thank you for your assistance

I would like to start a question.


As we train and do audits, we find issues of hazardous chemicals being handled and stored improperly at many foreign sites.  The ‘guidance’ is to segregate, keep apart, isolate for the various hazard classes.  The factories are asking good questions as to whether we can further define these words: segregate, keep apart, isolate – that is where  I am seeking help.  I have the ‘definitions’ from U.S. DOT, IMDG, NFPA.  Somewhat helpful but not definitive for factories.  Can anyone offer some guidance?  Good reference(s) we can provide to the global supply chain?
