Class 7 Radioactive goods are a unique category within the UN classification of dangerous goods. These materials emit ionising radiation therefore posing inherent risks to human health and the environment. They contain radionuclides, an atom with an unstable nucleus and which consequently is subject to radioactive decay. It is also crucial to understand that not all radioactive materials are the same, they vary in terms of radioactivity, half-life and potential hazards.

Key Safety Requirements
Ensuring the safe transportation of Class 7 Radioactive goods is absolutely paramount. Strict safety protocols and regulations are in place across the industry to mitigate risks protecting people, properties and the environment from inherent dangers. JJX's commitment to meeting these regulations is what enhances our reputation as a reliable and responsible transport partner for your supply chain needs. Some key safety requirements include:
Common Goods in Class 7 Radioactive
Medical Isotopes: These are essential for diagnostic imaging and cancer treatments.
Nuclear Medicine Devices: Devices used in the medical industry for imaging and therapy.
Industrial Radiography Sources: Used for non-destructive testing in industries like construction and manufacturing.
Research and Development Materials: Radioactive substances used in scientific research and development.
Radiopharmaceuticals: Pharmaceuticals containing radioactive isotopes for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes.
Transporting Class 7 radioactive materials is subject to the regulations outlined in the European Agreement Concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road (ADR). These regulations set stringent guidelines for packaging, labeling, placarding, and documentation to ensure the secure transportation of radioactive materials.
The ADR treaty was first concluded in Geneva in 1957, finally entering force over a decade later on the 29th January 1968. Every two years the regulations are updated with the latest version applicable being the ADR 2023. As of this update, 54 states across Europe are party to the ADR treaty.
