Adherence to Regulatory Requirements

We follow the regulatory requirements established by The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) and the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission (US NRC). Both the CNSC and US NRC require that, prior to release of radioactive shipments, we must verify that purchasers of radioactive materials—regardless of their location in the world—possess all authorization permitting them to possess the quantities of radioactive materials being shipped.

If you plan to purchase isotopes from Nordion, please note the following:
  • Isotopes enter the U.S. duty-free. We routinely arrange clearance through U.S. Customs for goods shipped from Canada.
  • For shipments outside of the U.S. and Canada, the purchaser is responsible for the clearance of shipments consigned to them
