Transport Safety

​April 2016 in Vienna
This was a truly unique event that brought together participants from almost 60 countries to participate in a workshop on the drafting of regulations for the safe transport of radioactive material.  The collaborative effort between the departments of Nuclear Safety and Security and Technical Cooperation, through 4 different IAEA projects, brought almost 80 participants to Vienna, many for the very first time, to spend focused time, under the guidance of 9 different experts, on the drafting of transport regulations.  The week also offered the opportunity to strengthen the existing regional transport networks, and to encourage cooperation between the different regional networks.
