Abstract

Currently a project is underway in GRS at the request of the Federal Government Ministry for the Environment, Nature Protection, and Nuclear Safety, with the objective of conducting a study to determine the magnitude and characteristics of shipments of all radioactive materials within the Federal Republic of Germany and of performing an assessment of the radiation exposure associated with the transportation of radioactive materials. For a specific subset of radioactive materials, i.e. fissile materials and non-fissile bulk quantity sources of radionuclides, the appropriate information has been compiled and is subject to further analysis. The conduct and results of the study for normal transport operations are described along with the major conclusions drawn.
