Each day thousands of shipments of radioactive materials are transported around the world.
The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) is the world’s central intergovernmental forum for scientific and technical co-operation in the nuclear field. Its focuses are the safe, secure, and peaceful use of nuclear technologies, the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals and contributing to international peace and security.
The International Maritime Organization (IMO) is the United Nations’ specialised agency responsible for the safety and security of shipping and the prevention of pollution by ships. The IMO’s main role is to create a regulatory framework for the shipping industry that is fair and effective, universally adopted and universally implemented.
The International Organization for Standardizations (ISO) is a nongovernmental body with a mission to promote the development of standardization and related activities worldwide. Technical Committee 85 (TC85) deals with nuclear energy, nuclear technologies and radiological protection; standards relating to the transport of radioactive materials are included in the activities of Sub-Committee 5 (SC5: nuclear installations, processes and technologies).
