Safety of transport of radioactive material. Contributed papers

Abstract

Radioactive material has been transported for decades within and between countries as the use of radioactive material to benefit mankind has expanded. The transport can involve many types of materials (radionuclides and radiation sources for applications in agriculture, energy production, industry, and medicine) and all modes of transport (road, rail, sea and waterways, and air). Among the organizations in the United Nations system, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has the statutory function to establish or adopt standards of safety for protection of health against exposure to ionizing radiation. Within its statutory mandate and pursuant to this request, in 1961, the IAEA issued Regulations for the Safe Transport of Radioactive Material (the IAEA Transport Regulations). The Transport Regulations were periodically reviewed and, as appropriate, have been amended or revised. The latest version of the Transport Regulations was issued in 2000 by the IAEA as Publication TS-R-1 (ST-1, Revised). In addition, the IAEA is entrusted by its Statute to provide for the application of its standards at the request of States. The objective of the Conference is to foster the exchange of information on issues related to the safety of transport of radioactive material by providing an opportunity for representatives from  More>>

In addition, the IAEA is entrusted by its Statute to provide for the application of its standards at the request of States. The objective of the Conference is to foster the exchange of information on issues related to the safety of transport of radioactive material by providing an opportunity for representatives from sponsoring international organizations and their Member States and from other co-operating and participating organizations to discuss critical issues relating to the safety of transport of radioactive material by all modes and to formulate recommendations, as appropriate, regarding further international co-operation in this area. The following topics have been identified by the Technical Programme Committee as the subjects to be covered in the background briefing sessions: History and Status of the IAEA Transport Regulation Development; Experience in adoption of the IAEA Transport Regulations at the international level; Implementation of the IAEA Transport Regulations and other related requirements at the modal level; Experience in application of the IAEA Transport Regulations; Summary of actions (present and future) on security in transport of radioactive material (including actions at the IAEA). The following topics have been identified as the subjects to be covered: Liability in the Transport of Radioactive Material; Effectiveness of the Regulatory Process at the Member State Level; Adequacy of Safety Requirements; Effectiveness of Radiation Protection in Transport; Packaging and Transport of Nuclear Fuel Cycle Material; Packaging and Transport of Non Nuclear Fuel Cycle Radioactive Material; Packaging and Transport of Non-standard Radioactive Materials; Compliance Assurance and Quality Assurance; Emergency Preparedness and Response.}
