EXPERIENCE IN THE TRANSPORT OF SAMPLES CONTAINING NUCLEAR MATERIALS
In the framework of the control of nuclear materials I.A.E.A. and Euratom Safeguard Directorate collect small samples of nuclear materials at facilities; the samples are packed and shipped to laboratories for analysis. Great delays are encountered in the transport of samples. The most important reasons of delays are: - import-export licenses - insurance cover for the transport - shipment approvals - lack of approved or validated containers - execution of transport. This paper gives an analysis of these delays and suggestions for actions to be taken to facilitate these transports.
