Abstract

The Standard Review Plan for Transportation Packages for Radioactive Material provides guidance for the review and approval of applications for packages used to transport radioactive material (other than irradiated nuclear fuel) under 10 CFR Part 71.

This document is intended for use by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) staff. Its objectives are to (1) summarize 10 CFR Part 71 requirements for package approval, (2) describe the procedures by which the NRC staff determines that these requirements have been satisfied, and (3) document the practices developed by the staff in previous reviews of package applications.

Comments, errors or omissions, and suggestions for improvement should be sent to the Director, Spent Fuel Project Office, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Washington, DC 20555-0001.
