Good Practice and Standards for the safe, efficient and reliable transport of radioactive materials

Henry-Jacques NEAU

Secretary General, World Nuclear Transport Institute

Catania, Italy, 27 April 2013

radioactive materials are used in many purposes
Radioactive Materials are used in manypurposes
  • Examples of uses of radioactive materials:
    • Medical
    • Industrial
    • Production of electricity
shipments of radioactive materials
Shipments of Radioactive Materials
  • Safety of Radioactive Materials in transport vestedprimarily in the package, usingdefense-in depthprinciples
  • No RAM carried as bulk
testing of radioactive materials package s
Testing of Radioactive Materials Package s
  • Package test requirements are stringent
ram transport industry working together
RAM Transport Industry working together
  • Founded in 1998 by three Founder Members

AREVA, INS, FEPC

  • 46 Members from a wide range of industry sectors: radioisotopes producers, major utilities, fuel producers, transport companies, package designers, package producers and mines...

World Nuclear Transport Institute
  • The voice of the radioactive materials transport industry
  • Factual information – factsheets, websitewww.wnti.co.uk
  • Good practice guides for the industry
  • Working groups for industrymembers

  • WNTI deliversmanypresentations and courses
shipments of radioactive materials1
Shipments of Radioactive Materials
  • Radioactive Materials (RAM) are Class 7 out of the 9 classes of dangerousgoods
  • An excellent safety record spanning over 50 years

Shipments of Radioactive Materials
  • Shipping linesaccept RAM shipments but are sometimeslimited by the acceptance by en-route ports

Denials of shipment

WNTI available for information and advice to the Port Management and workers, on the safetyfeatures of RAM transport, to help dispelmisconceptions

developping good practices
Developping good practices
  • Very stringent and robust regulatory regime
  • Industry good practices are shared for wider implementation
  • All WNTI-developed standards and good practices are freely available on our website www.wnti.co.uk
some wnti publications
Some WNTI publications

Some of the WNTI publications freely available

  • Transport Principles (general principles, or charter)
  • Tracking of packages
  • Radiation Dose Assessment
  • Overview of Safety Regulations
  • Industry Good Practices for ISO Containers in multimodal Transport
  • Good Practices for the securing of Drums of Uranium Ore Concentrates in 20' Sea Containers
  • Glossary to disambiguate some terms and responsibilities
conclusion
Conclusion
  • Used in addition to international regulations, good practice brings more safety, prevents problems and reduces costs.
  • Recording of know-how
  • Implementation of standards brings confidence to all parties involved, from Authorities to Service Providers to (hopefully) stakeholders.

Improved Performance

Improved Economics

Improved Safety
