Codes and Guides

In December 2014, ARPANSA published the Code for the Safe Transport of Radioactive Material, RPS C-2 (commonly referred to as the Transport Code), which replaces the Code of Practice for the Safe Transport of Radioactive Material (2008) (RPS 2). It adopts the International Atomic Energy Agency Regulations for the Safe Transport of Radioactive Material 2012 Edition (No. SSR-6). This Code is intended to establish uniform requirements for the transport of radioactive material in Australia by road, rail or those waterways not covered by the Maritime legislation.
