§1503.Definitions

A.As used in this Chapter, the following definitions apply.

A1the maximum activity of special form radioactive material permitted in a Type A package. This value is listed in 10 CFR Part 71, Appendix A, Table A-1, A-2, A-3, or A-4, incorporated by reference in LAC 33:XV.1599.A, or may be derived in accordance with the procedure prescribed in LAC 33:XV.1599.B-F.
A2the maximum activity of radioactive material, other than special form, low specific activity (LSA), and surface contaminated object (SCO) material, permitted in a Type A package. This value is listed in 10 CFR Part 71, Appendix A, Table A-1, A-2, A-3, or A-4, incorporated by reference in LAC 33:XV.1599.A, or may be derived in accordance with the procedure prescribed in LAC 33:XV.1599.B-F.

Consignmenteach shipment of a package or groups of packages or load of radioactive material offered by a shipper for transport.
Containment Systemthe assembly of components of the packaging intended to retain the radioactive material during transport.
Conveyancefor transport by public highway or rail, any transport vehicle or large freight container; for transport by water, any vessel, or any hold, compartment, or defined deck area of a vessel, including any transport vehicle on board the vessel; and for transport by aircraft, any aircraft.
Criticality Safety Index (CSI)the dimensionless number (rounded up to the first decimal place) assigned to and placed on the label of a fissile material package, to designate the degree of control accumulation of packages containing fissile material during transportation. Determination of the criticality safety index is described in LAC 33:XV.1511 and 1512 and in 10 CFR 71.59.
Deuteriumfor the purposes of LAC 33:XV.1505.C and 1511, deuterium and any deuterium compound, including heavy water, in which the ratio of deuterium atoms to hydrogen atoms exceeds 1:5000.
