UF6 Handling Practices Manual

The UF6 Manual: Good Handling Practices for Uranium Hexafluoride, USEC-651, is the ninth revision of a document first issued by the Atomic Energy Agency in 1957 to provide information on how UF6 is handled in a uranium enrichment plant.

This document, which was published in 2006, is neither a rule nor a standard, but rather a general description of how to manage UF6.
