The IAEA transport regulations: main modifications included in the 1996 edition and the possible impact of its adoption in Argentina; El reglamento de transporte del OIEA: principales modificaciones incorporadas en la edicion de 1996 y el posible impacto de su adopcion en Argentina

Abstract

Full text: This paper points out a comparative analysis between the requirements of the 1985 edition (as Amended 1990), in-force in almost all countries included Argentina, and the 1996 edition, that is foresee to put in-force 1st January 2001, of the Regulations for the safe transport of radioactive material, published by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). The English version of the 1996 edition was published in December 1996 and the Spanish one in September 1997. Such edition was the culmination of a difficult consensus and harmonisation reached after an analysis process of the-years cycle between the IAEA Member Sates and related international organisations (United Nations, International Civil Aviation Organisation, International Air Transport Association, International Federation of Air Lines Pilots Associations, International Maritime Organisation) as well as regional organisations (Economic Commission for Europe, Commission of the European Communities). Both editions of the Regulations include a set of design, operational and administrative requirements that substantially do not differ as for their safety basic philosophy. However, the 1996 edition introduces numerous modifications of different magnitude, which will derive in technological, economic and operative consequences. Of such modifications the paper only analysed the relevant ones which update the state of art in the  More>>

The English version of the 1996 edition was published in December 1996 and the Spanish one in September 1997. Such edition was the culmination of a difficult consensus and harmonisation reached after an analysis process of the-years cycle between the IAEA Member Sates and related international organisations (United Nations, International Civil Aviation Organisation, International Air Transport Association, International Federation of Air Lines Pilots Associations, International Maritime Organisation) as well as regional organisations (Economic Commission for Europe, Commission of the European Communities). Both editions of the Regulations include a set of design, operational and administrative requirements that substantially do not differ as for their safety basic philosophy. However, the 1996 edition introduces numerous modifications of different magnitude, which will derive in technological, economic and operative consequences. Of such modifications the paper only analysed the relevant ones which update the state of art in the subject and allow the Regulations continue maintaining an acceptable level of control of the radiation, criticality and thermal hazards to persons, property and the environment during the transport of radioactive material. In addition, the paper briefly describes the possible impact that the main modifications induced in the 1996 edition of the Regulations should have, depending on the type of user considered either in Argentina or in other Latin America countries. However, it is desirable that the personal of competent authorities of each country involved in transport regulatory activities know in detail all the modifications introduced in the 1996 edition and notify them to the corresponding users. It is advantageous because of changes in structural or thermal requirements should be interesting for designers instead of changes in operative or administrative requirements should be for consignors or carriers concern. (author) [Espanol] Texto completo: El presente trabajo contiene un analisis comparativo entre las disposiciones de la edicion de 1986 (enmendada en 1990), vigente en casi todos los paises incluyendo la Argentina, y la edicion de 1996, que se preve entrara en vigencia en enero del 2001, del `Reglamento para el transporte seguro de materiales radiactivos` del Organismo Internacional de Energia Atomica (OIEA). La edicion de 1996, publicada en idioma ingles en diciembre de 1996 y en castellano en septiembre de 1997, fue el corolario de un dificultoso consenso y armonizacion alcanzado despues de un ciclo de 10 anios de analisis entre los Estados Miembros del OIEA y los organismos internacionales (Naciones Unidas, Organizacion de Aviacion Civil Internacional, Asociacion de Transporte Aereo Internacional, Federacion Internacional de las Asociaciones de Pilotos de Lineas Aereas, Organizacion Maritima Internacional) y regionales (Comision Economica para Europa, Comision de las Comunidades Europeas). Ambas ediciones del Reglamento contienen un conjunto de requisitos de disenio, operativos y administrativos que en sustancia no difieren en cuanto a la filosofia basica de seguridad. Sin embargo, la ultima edicion introduce numerosas modificaciones de diversa magnitud que derivaran en consecuencias de indole tecnologica, economica y opoerativa. Tales mofidicaciones, de las cuales se analizan solo las mas relevantes, actualizan el estado del arte en el tema permitiendo que la norma continue manteniendo un grado razonable de control sobre los riesgos radiologicos, de criticidad y termicos que pueden correr las personas, los bienes y el medio ambiente durante el transporte de materiales radiactivos. Ademas, el trabajo describe sucintamente el posible impacto que las principales modificaciones introducidas en la edicion de 1996 del Reglamento podrian tener, segun el tipo de usuario que se trate, en Argentina o en otros paises de America Latina. Sin embargo, es aconsejable que los integrantes de las autoridades competentes de cada pais que ejerzan funciones regulatorias del transporte conozcan en detalle todas las modificaciones introducidas en dicha edicion y las informen a los correspondientes usuarios, ya que por ejemplo, los cambios en los requisitos estructurales o termicos serian de interes a los diseniadores y los de indole operativa o administrativa a los remitentes o transportistas.
