Background Information

Since the publication of TS-G-1.3, the two publications in the Safety Requirements category that it primarily supports have been revised: once in the case of the BSS/GSR Part 3; and three times in case of TS-R-1/SSR-6. In addition, two Safety Guides (GSG-7 Occupational Radiation Protection and GSG-8 Radiation Protection of the Public and the Environment) have been published to provide recommendations for the implementation of GSR Part 3. The revision of TS-G-1.3 is proposed to:

  • Provide recommendations on how to meet the relevant requirements established in GSR Part 3 and SSR-6 (Rev. 1);
  • Ensure consistency with other relevant IAEA safety standards that were published recently, e.g. GSR Part 2, GSR Part 7, GSG-7 and GSG-8;
  • Incorporate the experience gained from the application of TS-G-1.3 by Member States.


The objective of the proposed revision of TS-G-1.3 is to provide recommendations and guidance on meeting the requirements established in para. 302 of SSR-6 (Rev. 1) for a radiation protection programme for the transport of radioactive material, with due consideration of already published IAEA General Safety Guides dealing with radiation protection. It will provide recommendations on meeting the requirements for criticality safety by making reference to the recommendations provided in SSG-27, Criticality Safety in the Handling of Fissile Material; it will not provide recommendations for any non-radiological hazards associated with the transport of radioactive material.
