Code of Conduct on the Safety and Security of Radioactive Sources

An internationally endorsed, non-binding Code of Conduct [50] was approved in 2004 to facilitate the safe management of radioactive sources, including disused sealed sources that in most cases are declared as RAW. The objectives set out in the code should be achieved through the establish­ment of a comprehensive system of regulatory control of sources, applied from their initial production to their final disposal, and a system for the restoration of such control if it has been lost. To facilitate the implementa­tion of the Code of Conduct, in 2005 a document ‘Guidance on the Import and Export of Radioactive Sources of Category 1[7] and Category 2[8]’ was also agreed 651]. As of May 2011, 103 Member States have expressed support for the provisions of the Code of Conduct [52].
