Transport Of Radioactive Materials

ADR Class 7

Following extensive training drivers and staff at JJX are able to carry class 7 radioactive goods.

Dangerous goods which are classed as Radioactive Material are defined by the dangerous goods regulations as any material containing radionuclides where both the activity concentration and the total activity exceeds certain pre-defined values.

A radionuclide is an atom with an unstable nucleus, and which consequently is subject to radioactive decay.

Radioactive Transport Regulations

Reason For Regulation

Whilst undergoing radioactive decay radionuclides emit ionizing radiation, which presents potentially severe risks to human health.

Regulations For The Safe Transport Of Radioactive Material

When it comes to chemicals and other hazardous or dangerous goods, you want to know your products are in the hands of experts. Knowing this, is why we are part of the Transported Asset Protection Association, (TAPA).

We pride ourselves on our highly trained drivers who always carry Personal Protective Equipment on board their vehicles.

The next logical step was furthering our security by obtaining Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) Certification. AEO status is an internationally recognised quality mark indicating that your role in the international supply chain is secure and that your customs controls and procedures are efficient and compliant.
