Radiation protection (ICS 13.280)

KS 2029:2019 Corpses containing radioactive materials — Safe handling — Code of practice (10 page(s), in English)

The Code is intended as a guide to the safe handling of the bodies of persons who have died while undergoing treatment with radioactive substances, whether sealed or unsealed, and which still retain, in or on the body, significant amounts of radioactivity. Such corpses may act as sources of ionizing radiations to which pathologists and others attending them may unknowingly be exposed. As ionizing radiations may cause adverse biological effects in those exposed to them it is desirable to keep such exposure to a minimum.
