Radioactive materials licensed by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) include sealed or unsealed unstable isotopes that are: 1) produced in nuclear reactors or accelerators; 2) artificially enriched special nuclear (fissionable) materials; or 3) discrete forms of radium or other natural radionuclides.
