Transport of Radioactive Material in Mediterranean Coastal States and Associated Shipping States


Mediterranean Region Transport Network

A network for the safe transport of radioactive material has been established to move Competent Authorities in the Mediterranean region towards a sustainable system of mutual support, cooperation and coordination in normal and emergency transport of radioactive material. A key aspect of the approach of the network is to promote sustainable transport of radioactive material in the region. This network was established under a project conducted by the IAEA, with funding from the European Union.

Why do we need to transport radioactive materials? Radioactive materials have been used to enhance the quality of our lives for over a century. Today, all manner of products that we take for granted are dependent upon the reliable transport of radioactive materials from manufacturer to end user. Several examples of such applications are described below.

For more information on this, please visit the IAEA Transport Safety website.
European Association of Competent Authorities
The Association is an example of the transport safety regulatory community collaborating and working more closely together on the practicalities of regulatory oversight. This is particularly important for transport as often the transport of radioactive goods is a global process that can involve several countries. The transport of radioactive material has an enviable safety record.
