SUMMARY REPORT OF THE STATE SURVEILLANCE PROGRAM ON THE TRANSPORTATION OF RADIOACTIVE MATERIALS

The report reviews and summarizes the results of ten three-month surveys of the transportation of radioactive materials conducted by nine States (Illinois, Louisiana, Minnesota, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, South Carolina, Texas) and New York City between 1973 and 1976. The Nuclear Regulatory Commission and the Department of Transportation, along with the participating States, developed the surveillance program. The primary objectives of the program were: (1) to obtain data on the physical condition of packages containing radioactive material and the degree of compliance with existing regulations, (2) to gather information and data concerning radiation levels in the transportation systems work places, (3) to determine radiation doses received by personnel in such work places, and (4) to obtain data on the extent personnel comply with instructions and regulations for handling radioactive material packages.
