Sealed source definition

Sealed source means any radioactive material that is encased in a capsule designed to prevent leakage or escape of the radioactive material.
Sealed source means radioactive material that is permanently bonded or fixed in a capsule or matrix designed to prevent release and dispersal of the radioactive material under the most severe conditions which are likely to be encountered in normal use and handling.
Sealed source means any encapsulated radioactive material, which has been constructed in such a manner as to prevent the escape of any radioactive material.
