OSI is Vetted by Customs and Border Protection

June 19, 2014

OSI is one of a few companies vetted by the Customs and Border Protection agency to perform radiation surveys on containers suspected of carrying radioactive materials.

OSI’s experienced and professional Health Physics team use modern calibrated radiation detection systems to locate and identify unknown radioactive materials that appear in shipping containers arriving at our U.S. ports of entry.

Sometimes the container itself is contaminated, but most of the time, a few pallet loads of commercial items contain the radioactive materials.  Most often the radionuclide is Co-60.

OSI’s sample analysis and instrument calibration service is ISO 17025 accredited.
