The IAEA Regulations for Safe Transport of Radioactive Material have been in place since 1961 and have been periodically reviewed by Member State experts and revised by the IAEA as needed to address safety concerns. The regulations have historically provided requirements for package design, package performance, and operations based, in part, on the type of radioactive material that would be included in the package. Since their introduction the regulations have included criteria to permit the transport of fissile material in packages not requiring competent authority approval of the design for the transport of fissile material. This publication provides the background and overview to the revised requirements, and provides practical advice regarding the use of these revised provisions.
