(a) Iodine-125 in units not exceeding ten microcuries (370 kBq) each for use in in vitro clinical or laboratory tests not involving internal or external administration of radioactive material, or the radiation therefrom, to human beings or animals;
(b) Iodine-131, in units not exceeding ten microcuries (370 kBq) each for use in in vitro clinical or laboratory tests not involving internal or external administration of byproduct material, or the radiation therefrom, to human beings or animals;
(c) Carbon-14, in units not exceeding ten microcuries (370 kBq) each for use in in vitro clinical or laboratory tests not involving internal or external administration of byproduct material, or the radiation therefrom, to human beings or animals;
(d) Hydrogen-3 (tritium) in units not exceeding 50 microcuries (1.85 MBq) each for use in in vitro clinical or laboratory tests not involving internal or external administration of radioactive material, or the radiation therefrom, to human beings or animals;
(e) Iron-59 in units not exceeding 20 microcuries (740 kBq) each for use in in vitro clinical or laboratory tests not involving internal or external administration of radioactive material, or the radiation therefrom, to human beings or animals;
(f) Selenium-75, in units not exceeding ten microcuries (370 kBq) each for use in in vitro clinical or laboratory tests not involving internal or external administration of byproduct material, or the radiation therefrom, to human beings or animals;
(g) Mock iodine-125 reference or calibration sources, in units not exceeding 0.05 microcuries (1.85 kBq) of iodine-129 and 0.005 microcuries (185 Bq) of americium-241 each for use in in vitro clinical or laboratory tests not involving internal or external administration of radioactive material, or the radiation therefrom, to human beings or animals.
(2) A person may not receive, acquire, possess, use or transfer radioactive material under the general license granted by section (1) of this rule unless that person:
(a) Has filed the required Authority application for registration pursuant to OAR 333-101-0007 and submitted the registration fee pursuant to 333-103-0015 and received from the Authority a validated license with certification number assigned; or
(b) Has a license that authorizes the medical use of radioactive material that was issued under OAR chapter 333, division 116.
(3) A person who receives, acquires, possesses or uses radioactive material pursuant to the general license established by section (1) of this rule must comply with the following:
(a) The general licensee must not possess at any one time, at any one location of storage or use a total amount of iodine-125, iodine-131, selenium-75, cobalt-57 and/or iron-59 in excess of 200 microcuries (7.4 MBq);
(b) The general licensee must store the radioactive material, until used, in the original shipping container or in a container providing equivalent radiation protection;
(c) The general licensee must use the radioactive material only for the uses authorized by section (1) of this rule;
(d) The general licensee must dispose of the mock iodine-125 reference or calibration sources described in subsection (1)(g) of this rule as required by OAR 333-120-0500 and section (6);
(e) The general licensee must not transfer the radioactive material to a person who is not authorized to receive it pursuant to a license issued by the Authority, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, any Agreement State or Licensing State, nor transfer the radioactive material in any manner other than in the unopened, labeled shipping container as received from the supplier.
(4) The general licensee must not receive, acquire, possess or use radioactive material pursuant to section (1) of this rule:
(a) Except as prepackaged units that are labeled in accordance with the provisions of an applicable specific license issued by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, any Agreement State or any Licensing State that authorizes the manufacture and distribution of iodine-125, iodine-131, carbon-14, hydrogen-3 (tritium), selenium-75, cobalt-57, iron-59 or mock iodine-125 for distribution to persons generally licensed under section (1) of this rule or its equivalent; and
(b) Unless one of the following statements, as appropriate, or a substantially similar statement which contains the information called for in one of the following statements, appears on a label affixed to each prepackaged unit or appears in a leaflet or brochure which accompanies the package:
(A) This radioactive material may be received, acquired, possessed and used only by physicians, veterinarians, clinical laboratories or hospitals and only for in vitro clinical or laboratory tests not involving internal or external administration of the material, or the radiation there from, to human beings or animals. Its receipt, acquisition, possession, use and transfer are subject to the regulations and a general license of the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission or of a state with which the Commission has entered into an agreement for the exercise of regulatory authority.
