Provides complementary guidance to the IAEA Advisory Material (TS-G-1.1) on the technical aspects of testing. Testing a package design is often a time consuming and expensive exercise. A perfectly executed series of tests are useless if subsequently the philosophy of the test method is challenged and rejected.

This Guide sets out current ‘good practice’ in using the explicit FEM for the analysis of impact behaviour of transport packages and specifically for the demonstration of compliance with the UK regulations for public domain transport when applying for the necessary approval from the UK Office for Nuclear Regulation.

To help consignors understand the requirements for transporting radioactive material as an Excepted Package.

Provides guidance on design, manufacture, testing, approval and operation of ISO Freight Containers as Industrial.

This Procurement Guide for Transport Packaging provides guidance for the supply of services required to enable the procurement of transport packaging that meet the requirements for the safe transport of radioactive material. It should be noted that these services are considered to include the minimum requirements to enable the user to procure goods and services in a responsible manner and to operate as an Intelligent Customer.

This is a guide to Packaging Repair provides guidance on the process to be applied for the repair of packaging to enable them to remain compliant with the requirements for the safe transport of radioactive material.

This document provides guidance on the testing of Type IP-2, Type IP-3 and Type A Packages.
