118 ASN report on the state of nuclear safety and radiation protection in France in 2017 Chapter 03 - Regulations in service, NPE must be monitored and maintained by the licensee under ASN control and must undergo periodic technical inspections by ASN-approved organisations. The list of approved organisations and the associated approval resolutions are available on www.asn.fr . Furthermore, II of Article L. 593-33 of the Environment Code gives ASN competence to issue licensing decisions and check the in-service monitoring of non-nuclear pressure equipment installed in a BNI. Table 2 presents regulations applicable to pressure equipment in BNIs. 4. Regulations governing the transport of radioactive substances 4.1 International regulations The regulations applicable to transports of radioactive substances are based on the transport regulation called SSR-6, published by the IAEA. ASN takes part in the work by the IAEA committee tasked with drafting and updating this regulation. This regulation is not binding but its provisions, which are specific to radioactive substances, are integrated into the appendices of international agreements on the safety of the carriage of hazardous goods (which includes radioactive substances): the appendices of the European agreement on the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road (ADR) for road transport, the regulation on the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Rail (RID) for rail transport, the appendices of the European agreement on the International Carriage of Dangerous goods by Inland Waterways (ADN) for river transport, the International Maritime Dangerous Goods Code (IMDG Code) for carriage by sea and the technical instructions of the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) for carriage by air. France is a signatory to these various agreements, which are transposed in full into national law. For carriage by land (road, rail and inland waterways), European Directive 2008/68/CE of 24th September 2008 requires the application of the appendices to the ADR, RID and ADN within the European Union. This Directive is transposed into French law by a single order covering all carriage by land on the national territory. This is the Order of 29th May 2009 as amended concerning the carriage of dangerous goods by land, known as the “TMD” Order. For carriage by sea, the Order of 23rd November 1987 concerning vessel safety, known as the “RSN Order” renders application of the IMDG code mandatory. Finally, for carriage by air, European regulation 859/2008 of 20th August 2008, known as “regulation EU OPS1”, renders the ICAO’s technical instructions directly applicable in French law and clarifies certain aspects. The regulatory requirements applicable to the various modes of transport are all derived from IAEA regulation SSR-6. They more specifically concern package robustness, the reliability of transport operations, emergency management in accident situations and the radiation protection of workers and the public (see chapter 11).
