(e) As otherwise authorized by the department in writing.
(3) Before transferring radioactive material to a specific licensee of the department, the NRC or an agreement state, or to a general licensee who is required to register with the department, the NRC or an agreement state prior to receipt of the radioactive material, the licensee transferring the material must verify that the transferee's license authorizes the receipt of the type, form, and quantity of radioactive material to be transferred.
(4) The following methods for the verification required by subsection (3) of this section are acceptable:
(a) The transferor may obtain for possession, and read, a current copy of the transferee's specific license or registration certificate;
(b) The transferor may obtain for possession a written certification from the transferee that the transferee is authorized by license or registration certificate to receive the type, form, and quantity of radioactive material to be transferred, specifying the license or registration certificate number, issuing agency, and expiration date;
(c) For emergency shipments the transferor may accept oral certification by the transferee that the transferee is authorized by license or registration certificate to receive the type, form, and quantity of radioactive material to be transferred, specifying the license or registration certificate number, issuing agency, and expiration date: Provided, That the oral certification is confirmed in writing within ten days;
(d) The transferor may obtain other sources of information compiled by a reporting service from official records of the department, the NRC or the licensing agency of an agreement state as to the identity of licensees and the scope and expiration dates of licenses and registration; or
