87. The consignor shall ensure that the dose rate at any point on the external surface of an excepted package does not exceed 5 µSv/h.
88. The consignor may transport radioactive material which is enclosed in or is included as a component part of an instrument or other manufactured article with activity not exceeding the item and package limits specified in column (B) and (C) respectively of the Eighth Schedule in an excepted package provided that:
(a) the dose rate at 10 cm from any point on the external surface of any unpackaged instrument or article is not greater than 0.1 mSv/h;
(b) each instrument or article bears the marking “RADIOACTIVE” except:
(i) devices containing radioluminescent; and
(ii) consumer products which do not individually exceed the activity limit for an exempt consignment or which have received approval from the NRRC, provided such products are transported in a package that bears the marking “RADIOACTIVE” on an internal surface in such a manner that warning of the presence of radioactive material is visible on opening the package; and
(c) the active material is completely enclosed by non-active component.
89. Radioactive material in forms other than those specified in Article 88 with an activity not exceeding the limit specified in column (D) of the Eighth Schedule may be transported in excepted package provided that:
(a) the package retains its radioactive contents under routine conditions of transport; and
(b) the package bears the marking “RADIOACTIVE” on an internal surface in such a manner that warning of the presence of radioactive material is visible on opening the package.
90. A manufactured article in which the sole radioactive material is unirradiated natural uranium, unirradiated depleted uranium or unirradiated natural thorium may be transported as an excepted package provided that the outer surface of the uranium or thorium is enclosed in an inactive sheath made of metal or some other substantial material.
