These guidelines are inscribed on the ‘TREMCARD’ which is carried in the vehicle transporting the radioactive consignment. R.P. 3: Consigner: Immediately upon receipt of intimation regarding the accident, the consignor should, in consultation with the officer-in-charge of the local health physics unit/person-in- charge of radiological safety at the consignor’s organisation, take the measures prescribed in the action plan given in this document.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
