Transport of radioactive material from different fields of operation is well advanced
in the Nordic countries: waste from the medical sector, industry, research,
and now in increasing amounts from reactor operation, including spent
fuel. In the future, waste from decommissioning will also be transported.
This report gives the amount of radioactive waste material to be transported
in the Nordic countries. Transport routes, transport containers, and transport
systems are described. Legislations and transport regulations are discussed.
