surface. The drop test shall follow the test procedures specified in applicable by
49 CFR 178.601, loaded with non-radioactive material that simulates the planned
portions of 49 CFR 178.603, and shall be conducted using containers as specified
loading for the package.
2) The inner container shall remain leak-tight as defined by ANSI N14.5 after a free
drop of the container (including simulated contents) from a 1.3-meter (4 ft.)
height onto a flat, essentially unyielding, horizontal surface. The drop test shall
follow the test procedures specified in applicable portions of 49 CFR 178.603, and
shall be conducted using containers as specified by 49 CFR 178.601, loaded with
non-radioactive material that simulates the planned loading for the container
3) The outer container shall remain leak-tight, as defined in ANSI N14.5, after a
hydrostatic proof-test to 1.5 times the Design Pressure. The test shall be
conducted using containers as specified by 49 CFR 178.601.
2. Testing During Use
Both the inner and outer containers shall be tested for leak-tightness, as defined in
ANSI N14.5, at their time of closure.
6.2.4 Other Criteria
1. Both the inner and outer containers shall have unique permanent identification
markings, such as by etching or engraving.
2. The exterior surface of the outer container shall not, at the time of assembly and
closure, exceed the removable surface contamination values specified by 10 CFR
835, Appendix D. The interior surface shall be similarly contamination-free at least
until the inner container is inserted. The removable surface contamination level on
the exterior surface of the inner container, at the time of its packaging into the outer
container, shall be as low as reasonably achievable, and shall not exceed 2000
