  Emma Wong Project Manager If you have ever wondered about the safety of packaging and transporting radioactive materials, now is the perfect opportunity to learn about it. The NRC is kicking off the process of updating our requirements in 10 CFR Part We do this periodically to reflect new information. Changes to international packaging. The scope of this book covers a rather narrow focus of management of radioactive materials. Specifically, the packaging, transportation, and storage components are the operations that are included. In general, the operations that represent the beneficial use of radioactive materials (e.g., nuclear power reactor operations, medical procedures Author: K.B. Sorenson. program involves packaging and/or transporting radioactive materials. To comply with the Hazardous Materials Transportation Act (HMTA), the DOT promulgated Hazardous Material Regulations codified in Title 49 Code of Federal Regulations (49 CFR), Parts to and Parts to File Size: KB.

On January 6, (47 FR and 47 FR ), the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) published in the Federal Register final amendments to Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) parts 71 and 73 (effective July 6, ), that require advance notification to . SUMMARY: The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is proposing to amend its regulations for the packaging and transportation of radioactive material. The NRC is issuing for public comment draft regulatory guide (DG), DG, Establishing Quality Assurance Programs for Packaging Used in Transport of Radioactive Material. Regulations for the Safe Transport of Radioactive Material. The objective of the regulations that are presented in this book is to protect persons, property and the environment from the effects of radiation during the transport of radioactive material. Modes of Transportation. Around the world radioactive materials are shipped by air, rail, truck and water. Radioactive materials are shipped by three of these four modes in Utah. Air transport is used for short lived radiopharmaceuticals. Rail transport is used when materials are heavy or bulky and truck transport is used for everything else.
