Date du congrès :05/11/2007
The purpose of the paper is to present the implementation of French regulations governing the protection and control of nuclear materials during transport. Through the 25 years of experience of managing nuclear transports, many improvements have been made and a great amount of feedback data is available. As the transport security is based on many factors from carrier approval to operational aspects, many areas have to be taken into account when assessing the overall security. This paper's aim is to present some French good practices.
