Remember that the waste must be labelled in line with the activity of the sources. Users should contact their unit’s local radiation protection coordinator. If shipping the wast to IFE, the contactperson at IFE must be contacted, and the wast must be registered in "avfallsdeklarering.no". Contact UiB’s central radiation protection coordinator for information on how to proceed with the waste.

Note that, for encapsulated sources for which a notification number has been received from the Norwegian Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority, the disposal notice must be sent to the same place. Contact the unit’s local radiation protection coordinator, who will contact the central radiation protection coordinator.
