PNRI INFORMATION NOTICE 2014-01
NEW REGULATION: CPR PART 27, “Security Requirements in the Transport of
All current holders of PNRI Radioactive Material License.
The Philippine Nuclear Research Institute (PNRI) is issuing this information notice to inform addressees of the new Code of PNRI Regulations (CPR) Part 27 “Security Requirements in the Transport of Radioactive Material”. The PNRI developed the CPR to achieve and maintain a high level of security during transport of radioactive material that is commensurate with the potential hazard posed by the radioactive material and to prevent unauthorized access or damage to, and loss, theft, sabotage, or unauthorized transfer of radioactive material during transport.
This regulation provides requirements in implementing, maintaining or enhancing a nuclear security regime to protect radioactive material while in transport against theft, sabotage or other malicious acts that could, if successful, have unacceptable radiological consequences.
The PNRI expects that addressees will review the information for applicability to their transport activities and consider actions, as appropriate.
