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 U.S. gaseous diffusion plants.

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