Waste transportation

Solid or solidified waste should be adequately packaged and contained for transport by road, rail, air or sea in accordance with the national legal requirements. These national legal requirements should be based on the requirements established in Ref. [37] or in international agreements.

The on-site transport of radioactive waste may not need to meet all the requirements for off-site transport, because the shipment is at all times under the control of the operator, who is responsible for on-site operations. The operator should establish requirements and authorizations to ensure the safety of on-site transport. The facility operator should take into account in the site emergency procedures the possible exposure of a member of the public as a consequence of the on-site transport of waste, although such an exposure is unlikely.
