Background Information

SSG-26 (Rev. 1), Advisory Material for the IAEA Regulations for the Safe Transport of Radioactive Material, 2018 Edition, is a legacy safety guide that supplements SSR‑6 (Rev. 1), Regulations for the Safe Transport of Radioactive Material, 2018 Edition, by providing information on individual provisions as to their purpose, their safety basis and how to apply them in practice.

As reported at the meeting of TRANSSC in June 2023, the Technical Basis Document Working Group (TBD-WG), a working group organized under the auspices of TRANSSC, recommended that SSG-26 (Rev. 1) should be revised to address changes to SSR-6 (Rev. 1) that will result from the ongoing revision process, as a new review cycle for SSR-6 (Rev. 1) began in 2021, and to remove historical information and safety basis information, which would be placed in a “Safety Basis Document”. Also, the revision should ensure the consistency with the strategies and processes for the establishment of IAEA Safety Standards (SPESS A).

This safety guide will provide recommendations and guidance on how to comply with the requirements of SSR-6 (Rev. 2) that are based on an international consensus on recommended measures (or equivalent alternative measures) that should be applied.

It is intended that the application of the content of this safety guide will result in the harmonized application of the requirements of SSR-6 (Rev.2).

Like SSR-6 (Rev. 2), SSG-26 (Rev. 2) will apply to the transport of radioactive material by all modes on land, water, or in the air. Transport comprises all operations and conditions associated with, and involved in, the movement of radioactive material; these include the design, manufacture, maintenance and repair of packaging, and the preparation, consigning, loading, carriage including in-transit storage, shipment after storage, unloading and receipt at the final destination of loads of radioactive material and packages.

This safety guide is intended to be used by competent authorities and users of SSR-6 (Rev. 2).
