Letter to International Customers
concerning Cesium 137 (Cs137) Sources
International orders shipped by
Freight Forwarder must only be shipped to customer's or broker's country of
Due to stricter security, International
shipping regulations for radioactive sources have changed. It is
becoming more difficult to deliver door to door. Most countries will no
longer allow transportations of radioactive material by common carriers from
the airport to a street address.
Source orders to
Spectrum Techniques must be assigned and picked up at the airport by you or
your representative. To meet these new requirements, orders containing
radioactive material (UN2910 Radioactive material, excepted package -
limited quantity of material) will only be shipped airport to airport. We will ship Hold At Airport to either you or to your
broker’s attention. The goods must be picked up in a reasonable time;
otherwise, you will be responsible for the cost of packages returned to
Spectrum Techniques. All fees at the airport will be the customer's responsibility;
this includes storage, duties, and other fees associated with the package
entering country of destination.
When placing your
source orders with us, please supply the following information for the
representative that will pick up the package(s) at the airport.
(1) Company name
(2) Contact name and
