We drive the highest standards of safety and security in the global transport of nuclear and radioactive materials.
We collaborate with industry experts to produce up to date resources that are free to download.
Each day thousands of shipments of radioactive materials are transported around the world.
We represent our members and their interests to a number of intergovernmental organisations, UN specialized agencies and nongovernmental bodies during the development and revision of regulations, guides and standards.
The transport of radioactive materials is governed by a rigorous, international regulatory framework. And as technology has advanced, so the standards are reviewed and updated to ensure this continues to be the case.
The transport of radioactive materials has a long history spanning several decades. Over this period a stringent regulatory regime has been developed at both international and national levels.
The materials used in the nuclear fuel cycle industry have traditionally been subject to extensive national protection measures. This responsibility extends to the right of a State to oversee the security measures that are taken during the transport of material originating from or obligated to their country.
