ASN Report 2017

215 ASN report on the state of nuclear safety and radiation protection in France in 2017 Chapter 08  - Regional overview of nuclear safety and radiation protection BOURGOGNE-FRANCHE-COMTÉ 1.5 Nuclear safety and radiation protection in the transport of radioactive substances ASN carried out 7 inspections in the area of radioactive substance transport in the Bourgogne-Franche-Comté region in 2017. These inspections concerned radioactive package consignors and consignees, road transport carriers and one nuclear medicine department. The inspections showed that the companies or departments without a transport safety advisor lacked knowledge of the regulations. For the majority of package consignors and consignees, the inspections highlighted poor knowledge of the regulatory requirements and margins for improvement in their quality management systems. The situation was found to be more satisfactory with the road transport carriers, who complied with all the regulatory requirements to ensure the safety of transport. 2.
