1. This Regulation prescribes the procedures for the completion and sending of a safety data sheet of a source of ionising radiation (hereinafter - the safety data sheet) and a sample of the safety data sheet (Annex).

2. Conformity with the Regulation shall be controlled by the Radiation Safety Centre, as well as the State Labour Inspectorate and customs authorities according to their competence.

3. The safety data sheet shall be completed in two copies by a manufacturer, importer, or another person who supplies a source of ionising radiation (hereinafter - the supplier).

4. The safety data sheet shall be completed in the official language if the source of ionising radiation is intended to be used in the territory of the Republic of Latvia. The supplier shall ensure that the safety data sheet of a source of ionising radiation to be imported from foreign countries is translated in the official language.

5. Internationally accepted symbols, markings, and units of measurement shall be used in the safety data sheet.

6. The supplier may adjust the sample of the safety data sheet provided in Annex to this Regulation according to the specific source of ionising radiation.

7. The supplier shall send one copy of the safety data sheet together with the cargo, the other copy of the safety data sheet - by post to an operator, as well as register each operator to which the safety data sheet has been sent, indicating its name, address, telephone number and the given name, surname, and position of the responsible person.

8. If any hazardous properties are detected which have not been indicated in the safety data sheet of a source of ionising radiation, the supplier shall prepare a new safety data sheet marked as "correction". The supplier shall immediately send the new safety data sheet by post to all operators which are recipients of this source of ionising radiation.

9. An operator shall have the safety data sheet regarding each source of ionising radiation at its disposal. The operator shall notify its workers regarding the information referred to in the safety data sheet. The safety data sheet shall be kept in an easily accessible place.

10. If any activities involving radioactive substances are carried out on the site, and the total radioactivity of which more than one million times exceeds the limits specified in laws and regulations requiring a special permit (licence) or a permit, the operator shall send a copy of the safety data sheet to the relevant local government.

11. If a source of ionising radiation is handed over to another operator, the safety data sheet shall be handed over together with the source of ionising radiation.
