The German Register on High-Activity Sealed Sources

With the establishment of a register of high activity sealed radioactive sources Germany has improved safety and security of radioactive sources. The register operates online since 2006 and allows tracking of these sources within Germany.

Licensees are obliged to send notifications about receipt and transfer as well as about controls of high-activity sources to the national register. Any notification is sent via secure internet connections using specific web applications. The competent Federal State authorities check these notifications in order to verify the source data.
