New shipping regulations for radiation detectors

On January 1st, 2017 IATA special provision A202 went into effect.  This new special provision allows for the shipment of radiation detectors containing pressurized Division 2.2 gases that were formally covered by DOT special permits and competent authority approvals.  In addition, special provision A202 allows for the repackaging of detectors into radiation detection equipment, resulting in streamlined shipping logistics for our customers.  If you are using the IMDG code or ADR regulations please refer to special provision 378.
