Radioactive Materials

Requirements for researchers using unsealed radioactive material at UNSW:

  • Work must be approved by the Radiation Safety Committee 
  • Work must be conducted in a registered laboratory
  • Users must have appropriate user licence or work under exemption given by another licenced user
  • Note: the SI unit of radioactivity is becquerels (Bq) and should be used rather than curies (Ci). Conversion: 37MBq = 1 microcurie.
