16. OTHER INFORMATION
This material is prepared for use as a standard or in interlaboratory comparison programs at analytical laboratories, which routinely handle uranium and/or plutonium. IBI Labs assumes that recipients of this material have developed internal safety procedures, which guard against accidental exposure to radioactive and toxic materials, contamination of the laboratory environment, or criticality.
IBI Labs further expects that personnel who handle radioactive materials have been thoroughly trained in the safety procedures developed by and for their Laboratory. The information and recommendations set forth herein are presented in good faith and believed to be correct as of the revision date. However, recipients of this material should use this information only as a supplement to other information gathered by them and should make independent judgment of the suitability and accuracy of this information.
This statement is not intended to provide comprehensive instruction in developing an appropriate safety program and does not include all regulatory guidelines.
