Description

The Safe Transport of Radioactive Materials is a handbook that details the safety guidelines in transporting radioactive materials. The title covers the various regulations and policies, along with the safety measures and procedures of radioactive material transport. The text first details the 1963 version of the IAEA regulation for the safe transport of radioactive materials; the regulation covers the classification of radionuclides for transport purposes and the control of external radiation hazards during the transport of radioactive materials. The next chapter deals with concerns in the implementation of the IAEA regulations on both national and international levels. Next, the selection presents a review of transport accidents and incidents. The text also covers the liability and insurance in the transport of radioactive materials, along with the U.K. practice on insurance and indemnity during the transport of radioactive materials. The book will be of great use to individuals involved in the nuclear power industry.
