Abstract:In September 1996 the Board of Governors of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) approved the publication of the 1996 edition of the Regulations of the Safe Transport of Radioactive Materials. The requirements for the transport of fissile material differ significantly in this document from the requirements of the previous (1985) edition of the Regulations. Changes have been made to the materials which are subject to the additional requirements for fissile material and to the way in which packages containing fissile material are tested, assessed and labelled. Specific requirements for the carriage of fissile material by air and for uranium hexafluoride have also been introduced.
