Level VI Decal

A CVSA Level VI decal is issued only to a vehicle and/or vehicle combination that is defect-free of the North American Standard Level VI Inspection for transuranic waste and highway route controlled quantities (HRCQ) of radioactive material at the point of origin.

If, at the point of origin, a vehicle and/or vehicle combination passes a defect-free inspection, the CVSA Level VI decal will be placed on the passenger side edge of the windshield near the top so the bottom edge of the decal is not more than 6″ from the top of the windshield. It must be out of the sweep of the wiper and not be affixed where it would interfere with the driver’s view. Refer to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations, 49 CFR 393.60 (e) (1) & (2) for windshield decal placement restrictions.

The CVSA Level VI decal will be hole-punched with the correct year, month and day the North American Standard Level VI Inspection was completed and will be valid for a single trip.

In addition, a regular or standard CVSA decal will also be applied in accordance with CVSA policy, if one is missing or not valid. Unlike the regular or standard CVSA decal, the CVSA Level VI decal is for the entire vehicle and/or vehicle combination.

Removal of the Level VI Decal

Any vehicle and/or vehicle combination in violation of the North American Standard Out-of-Service Criteria for HRCQ of radioactive material will be placed out of service and the CVSA Level VI decal will be removed.

Once in compliance and re-inspected, a new CVSA Level VI decal will be applied. The CVSA Level VI decal is not valid after the shipment for which it was issued is completed. If there is an equipment change while en route, the vehicle and/or vehicle combination will be re-inspected and a new CVSA Level VI decal applied. Any expired, regular or standard CVSA decal and any CVSA Level VI decal will be removed before a new CVSA Level VI decal is affixed.

In addition, it is the driver’s responsibility to remove the Level VI decal at the conclusion of the trip.
