Package Type

Designed as a Type B(U) Package to the IAEA Regulations for the Safe Transport of Radioactive Material.


Pending.  Previously certified by the UK Competent Authority as a B(U) Package, this approval is being processed under the current SSR-6 2012 regulations.

Validations may be available for other countries.


The SAFPAK consists of an Outer Container Drum (Design No 2767) which carries a resealable Inner Container (Design No 2775) within insulating and shock absorbing cork packing.

The Outer Container Drum has a pressed stainless steel body with a bayonet closing action stainless steel lid.

The Inner Container is a resealable stainless steel containment vessel.


The resealable Inner Container provides the containment system for the package.  The lid of the container has an O-ring seal with an interspace between the O-ring seals; the interspace facilitates leak testing to ensure that the seals achieve the prescribed levels of leak tightness.

To reduce the possibility of contaminating the resealable Inner Container, primary containers such as screw top cans or capsules are normally used to carry the contents, securely packed to prevent internal displacements under normal conditions of transport.
