                                    MEETING REPORT


1. Introduction and background

A Regional Workshop on Denials of Shipment of Radioactive Material
for African English Speaking Countries was held in Arusha Tanzania
from 11 to 13 June 2008. The Workshop was organised by the IAEA
in cooperation with the Government of the United Republic of
Tanzania through the Tanzania Atomic Energy Commission (TAEC).
The Workshop was in response to a resolution by the 51st regular
session of the IAEA General Conference.
Thirty six (36) delegates from eleven countries (Annex 6)① and six
international organizations② attended this workshop.

The International Steering Committee on Denial of Shipments of
Radioactive Material (ISC), set up by the IAEA in 2006, was
represented by Mr J. Rolstone, Vice-Chairman. The IAEA Secretariat
was represented by Mr N. Bruno, Ms Y. Suzuki from the Transport
Safety Unit, RIT/NSRW.
Delays and denials of shipments, even if consignments are prepared
fully in compliance with international regulations, are resulting in
hardships to patients undergoing diagnosis and treatment with radio-
pharmaceuticals and to others, who rely on many products and
commodities sterilized by radiation. Industry representatives are
warning of a growing incidence of denials or delays in international
shipments of radioactive material. They include isotopes commonly

used in medicine to diagnose heart attacks, sterilize medical
equipment or treat cancer.

IAEA acted as soon as denial of shipments was first brought to its
attention. Three specific action items concerning denials were
included in the Safety of Transport of Radioactive Material Five-Year
Action Plan. In response to these three items, the IAEA hosted a Fact
Finding Discussion Forum and a Consultants Meeting and has been
reporting on the developments to the annual General Conference. The
IAEA also participated at the International Maritime Organization
(IMO), the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and
International Cargo Handling Coordination Association (ICHCA)
meetings where denials were discussed
In 2006, to increase transparency, seek effective solutions and permit
participation of interested parties, the IAEA Director General created a
senior level International Steering Committee on Denials of Shipments
of Radioactive Material, which includes representatives from IAEA
Member States, International Governmental and non-governmental
organizations and industry.

The Steering Committee developed a strategy and an action plan. The
strategy is based on the following principles: a) promote education; b)
make a collective effort to share information and experience; c) report
denials; and d) look at real experience at how measures produced
specific results, and share that best practice. The action plan includes
setting up a series of regional workshops for Latin America, Asia,
Africa and Mediterranean basin Members States.

The workshops are meant to inform the concerned stakeholders, viz.
representatives of competent authorities, suppliers of radioactive
sources, some users of radioactive sources, public authorities and
other regulators about the difficulties posed by denial of shipment and
the known causes and explain the standard of safety ensured by the
IAEA Regulations. The workshops provide an opportunity to the
various players to interact face-to-face and sort out the hurdles and
thereby ensure smooth and unhindered safe movement of radioactive
material thereby promoting peaceful applications of radiation.


2. Development of the Workshop

Mr. Abraham M. Nyanda - The Director General of the Tanzania
Atomic Energy Commission - welcomed the participants. In his
opening remarks he emphasized that denials or delays of
transportation of radioactive materials can adversely affect various
applications, including medical treatment and diagnoses, construction
projects, scientific research and development, etc. For instance delays
of shipment of radioactive materials for medical use can result in
hardships to many patients undergoing diagnosis and treatment with
radioactive materials. He further emphasized that delays or refusals of
transport of radioactive materials might have significant impact to
users of radioisotopes with very short half-lives; and that any
interruption to their delivery can render them ineffective. The delay or
refusal of radioactive materials is not only time consuming, costly and
inconvenient, but also it can in some circumstances increase the risks
for radiation hazards.

He appealed to the participants to heartedly commit and dedicate
themselves to the deliberations of this crucial workshop on ways to
prevent or reduce instances of denials of shipments and to alleviate
the hardships to users of radioactive material that have been denied
or delayed for the benefit of AFRICA and the International Community
as a whole.

Mr. N. Bruno, IAEA/Scientific Secretary for this workshop, addressed
the problems of denials and delays and the work the Secretariat is
doing through the International Steering Committee (ISC) on Denials
of Shipments. Mr. Bruno highlighted the results from similar
workshops held in Montevideo/Uruguay and Rome/Italy. On behalf of
the Chairman of the session, Mr. Ngaile requested all the participants
to introduce themselves and to briefly state their affiliation, activities
and responsibilities.
The scene was set by presentations covering, among other things,
uses of radioactive material and causes of denial, the work of the ISC
and its Action Plan, IAEA regulations on safe transport of radioactive
material, conduct and outcomes of the similar regional events, held for
the Latin America region in July 2007 for the Mediterranean basin
region in May 2008, as well as the related follow up activities.

A summary of the reported cases of Denials and Delays of shipments
of radioactive material was presented by Ms. Suzuki. In her
presentation she provided a preliminary analysis of the 88 reports
received from September 2007 to March 2008.

The workshop agenda included presentations from Members States,
International Organizations, associations and the industry. Participants
from Botswana, South Africa, Sudan and Kenya and representatives

                                    3/50
from IATA, TIC, NTP and WNTI presented their work and experience
on denials and delays of shipment of radioactive material.

Dr. Martin of TIC reported that some concentrates from mining
industry contain low levels of natural occurring radioactive materials
(NORM). He explained that due to very low limit values which have
been set for the transport of radioactive materials, these natural ore
concentrates sometimes are regarded as being radioactive and thus
have to be transported under the rules of class 7. Being classified as
class 7, they face the same problems of denial/delay as the other
materials described earlier (radioactive sources for industrial and/or
medical applications).

Dr. Martin added that the independent scientific investigation, which
was carried out by the Canadian institute “SENES” during the last two
years, came to the conclusion that Tantalum ore concentrates do not
pose any risk to anybody throughout the whole transport chain and
therefore it was suggested by SENES that it should be excluded from
the regime of the class 7 if the NORM contained do not exceed 30
Bq/g for each U-238 and Th-232.

Following the experience from Montevideo and Rome, three working
groups were created to address the six areas of the action plan.

In the discussions, following the presentations, participants confirmed
the problem of denials continued to exist and - if no immediate action
is taken - it can grow in the region. They stressed the importance of
successful communication and strong cooperation between the
Steering Committee, the IAEA, the UN and International Modal
Organizations, trade associations, regional networks, and the National
Focal Points in each country to lead to better understanding and
resolution of the problem.

They also considered the importance of gathering hard evidence of
instances of denial to provide better data and information from which
to arrive at solutions to the problems and to quantify the extent of the
problem and measure success in this area.

The participants agreed that regional ownership and the creation of a
network is important to enable them to solve region-specific issues
and work with other regional networks and the ISC to resolve higher
level issues.
In the discussions, it became clear that there remained issues to be
resolved even amongst participants about the implications of their
work and the resulting effects that might have. For instance, where
carriers might find “work-around” solutions to denial, the extra journey
times and the higher costs they have to incur could have serious
implications for society and economies, thus increasing the risk to
safety and security, causing price increases in products.

Discussions in groups centred around six areas: awareness, training,
communication, lobbying, economic, and harmonization, drawing on
the action plan of the ISC to provide actions that were specific to the
region. The regional action plan developed during the workshop
included actions with clear ownership and responsibility for taking
action forward, and the time schedules for completion. The action
plan is attached as Annex 1 to this report.

Generic and key region specific conclusions and recommendations
are set out below.
3. Generic conclusions and recommendations

3.1. The participants concluded that further meetings of the regional
networks on denials of shipment are important to facilitate the
implementation of regional action plan and to maintain momentum of
achieving sustainable solutions in the longer term. They sought
support from the IAEA Secretariat to make this happen.

3.2. Participants recognised the importance of the opportunity
provided by PATRAM 2010 to highlight issues of denial. They
requested that denial was given a place in the programme and that
ways should be found, if necessary, to support the active participation
of the representatives from the region, national focal points and
stakeholders.
3.3 Participants asked the Secretariat and members of the ISC to
ensure that representatives from Regional Networks be invited to
attend its annual meeting to provide a communication link between the
Committee and the Networks.

3.4 Participants asked the IAEA Secretariat to take further
opportunities to highlight the importance of the denial issues in the
regions at the next session of the IAEA General Conference.

3.5 Participants asked the Secretariat to encourage Member States in
the region that are yet to appoint a National Focal Point (NFP) to do
so by December 2008 and encourage their active participation in the
Network.

                                   5/50
3.6 Participants asked the IAEA Secretariat as well as other UN,
modal and trade organisations to work closely together on all activities
related to finding solutions to denials of shipment.

3.7 Participants recommended that the ISC report regularly to the
Networks on the progress made so far on denials/delays of shipment.

3.8 Participants recommended that Member States, through their
NFPs, should examine the nature of the problem of denials/delays,
and report them to the following meeting of the ISC, so that
appropriate action can be taken.

3.9 Where possible, regional workshops should be held in a
coordinated fashion so that feedback from the events and lessons
learned can be disseminated among the Networks. This item should
be brought to the agenda of the next ISC meeting.
3.10 Customs stakeholders (including IAEA/National Authorities) to
take note (identify benefits and take advantages) of the World
Customs Organization Safe Framework of Standards aimed at
securing and facilitating global trade, and modernizing Customs
operations

4. Region specific key conclusions
4.1 There is a need to continue to drive the work of the regional group
after the workshop (the Arusha Group) to ensure that actions were
taken forward and completed and that one or two representatives
should be appointed to take the leading role.
4.2 Roles and responsibilities of the NFPs need to be more widely
known both national and internationally.

4.3 Specific and tailored training packages for – in order of priority –
port authorities, cargo handlers, pilots, carriers, customs, clearing
agents, truck drivers and law enforcement agencies need to be
available in accessible languages.
4.4 Communication and cooperation between competent authorities
and regulatory bodies is to be enhanced to harmonise activities and
optimise resources in the region.

4.5 Where national transport regulations have variations in relation to
the IAEA Transport Regulations (TS-R-1) this could trigger denials of
shipment. Needs of communication of information on these variation in
the region was recognised and It was agreed that these variations are
to be informed through the review-revision process of transport safety
regulations and guides established by the IAEA.

4.6 Strong and continuous dissemination of information between
IAEA, the ISC, NFPs and stakeholders within the country should be
established.

5. Region specific key recommendations

5.1 Under the coordination of South Africa the group is to.
    5.1.1. identify typical break down of shipment costs for
           radioactive material and compare to those for other
           dangerous goods;

    5.1.2. identify administrative burdens and how they impinge on
           sustainability;
5.2 Identifying economic incentive that would encourage carriage of
radioactive materials.
5.3 Determining potential administrative changes that could create a
more balanced view of all or some categories of class 7 material. It
was proposed that this item be carried in a workshop in Mauritius in
June 2009

5.4 Member States in the region are encouraged to - with support from
the IAEA - regularly organise training and awareness workshops for
the identified target audiences and provide the feedback to the ISC
and the Regional Network on the outcomes of the events.

5.5 A guide for applicants for licenses and certificates should be
developed and adopted by Member States in the region. It is
recognized that this is a long term action and that are to be
progressively achieved. Experience from other regions and assistance
from the IAEA are necessary to accomplish this goal.

REGIONAL SPECIFIC ACTION PLAN ON DENIALS OF SHIPMENT
              OF RADIOACTIVE MATERIAL

A. Introduction

Radioactive material needs to be transported for use in public health
and industry and for production of nuclear power. Transport of
radioactive material is governed by national and international
regulations which are based on the IAEA Regulations for the safe
transport of radioactive material. The regulations are developed by
experts from the Member States of IAEA and ensure high standards of
safety. However, recently there were increasing numbers of instances
of denials and delays of shipment of radioactive material, reported by
the countries of the Mediterranean Basin, even when complying with
regulations.

B. Region Specific Action Plan
B.1. Strategy
The Action Plan follows the strategy developed by the International
Steering Committee on Denial of Shipments is the base on the
following guiding principles:
 There should be a clear measurement of success.
 Education forms a key role.
 There should be a combined effort to take advantage of synergy.
 A collective effort to share information and experiences is essential.
 There should be a concentration on facilitation as the safety record
  is well established.
 A key factor of success depends on having reports of
  denials/delays – if denials are not reported, progress cannot be
  achieved.
 The evidence should be collected in a database to enable proper
  analysis.
 There is a need to look at real experience at how measures
  produced specific results.
 There is an urgent need for demonstrated success in some areas.
 Small steps should be taken, where these can be identified;
  experience should be gain from them and put into good practice;
  and success consolidated by building on the positive outcomes.
 A strategy for each issue is required.
 Existing structures and activities should be used, where possible.
As a result, the Arusha Group will
 Support monitoring of instances of denials/delays in the transport of
  radioactive material within the region,
 where denial occurs, will identify the causes or concern and
  measure effectiveness of the adopted solution;
 not involve itself in solving individual instances of denials/delays ,
  but will focus on broad and long term solutions associated with
  underlying causes; and
 be responsible for encouraging the reporting of delays and denials
  to the NFPs and/or appropriate Competent Authorities, who are
  then expected to provide the report to one of the UN agency
  contact points.
B.2. Method of Operation
Through the network created by the Arusha Group, records involving
instances of denials/delays within the region will be addressed by the
region to determine the root causes of such instances and agree on
actions intended to resolve these causes. IAEA is working to provide
necessary support for this goal objective.
As a regular course, the method of operation for all national parties
involved with any aspect of denials of shipments in the region will be
the following:
1.   Notification of instances
Each Member State should
    Establish a National Focal Point, with back-up, to whom reports
     are to be submitted; and
    Establish a     mutually    agreed     upon   information    sharing
     methodology.
Manufacturers/producers/shippers should
    Utilize the standard report form for notifications of denials/delays;
     and


                                     9/50
    File the report with the relevant National Competent Authority
     (National Focal Point);
The National Competent Authority should
    Validate the information in the manufacturers/producers/shippers
     report; and
    File the report with the ISC;
2.   Investigation of the cause of specific instances
The appropriate National Competent Authority will
    Work together to investigate reports of denials of shipments to
     determine the root cause; and
    After the root cause has been determined, provide the information
     to the ISC
3.   Facilitation/mediation of specific instances
All regional parties concerned, including manufacturers/producers/
shippers, Competent Authorities, relevant associations and
organisations and UN agencies will cooperate to facilitate the
resolution of issues which result in the denials or delays of shipment of
radioactive material.
On this basis the involved regional parties should:
    Work together to facilitate the investigation and resolution of the
     reason for denial/delay; and

    Conduct open and meaningful discussions regarding the incident,
     with an aim of finding a resolution;
B.3.       Action Plan
The Region Specific Action Plan lists the actions to be addressed by
the participating Member States through their National Focal Points.
The Action Plan is adopted by the Arusha Group, indicating the
actions, the member who would take the action, and the date by which
the action would be accomplished. It is noted that another workshop is
to be held in the region (for French speaking countries) and from that
meeting additional actions can be identified. It is anticipated that when
the Action Plan is completed, the resolutions of issues related to
denials of shipments of radioactive material will be substantially
advanced within countries of the region.
The Action Plan is based on six areas of work:
 Awareness, including a method of recording sustainability problems
  in transport of radioactive material to make Member States in the
  region and International Organisations aware of instances of
  denials and/or delays, their consequences, the underlying issues
  and their resolution;
 Training to improve the understanding of service providers and
  other major stakeholders so that they find it easier to comply with
  class 7 regulations and their concerns may be allayed;
 Communication to educate service providers;
 Lobbying for marketing, outreach and promotion of industries
  requiring transport of radioactive material and for promoting a
  positive image of use of radioactive material;
 Economic to identify and reduce economic burdens causing
  sustainability problems; and
 Harmonisation of international requirements where a National Focal
  Point should notify (in the form of a generic denials report) the
  Member States of the Group and the ISC, and where differences of
  interpretation, or additional requirements, result in denial with a
  view to encouraging discussion amongst the members of the
  Group.

   OPENING REMARKS TO THE IAEA REGIONAL TRAINING
   WORKSHOP ON DENIAL OF SHIPMENT OF RADIOACTIVE
     MATERIALS, 11-13 JUNE, 2008 ARUSHA, TANZANIA

                               By
                        Abraham M Nyanda
      Director General, Tanzania Atomic Energy Commission

Course Director,
Chair Person of the Steering Committee on Denials;
Scientific Secretary of the Workshop;
IAEA Representatives;
IATA Representative;
WNTI Representatives;
Workshop Participants;
Workshop Facilitators;
Invited Guests;
Ladies and Gentlemen.

First and foremost, I wish to express my sincere thanks and
appreciation for being accorded this opportunity and privilege of
officiating the Opening Speech of this very important Regional
Awareness Workshop on Denial of Shipment of Radioactive
Materials for African IAEA Member States. As such I would like to
first of all warmly welcome all participants of the workshop, the
IAEA representatives and the resource persons from various
organizations to the United Republic of Tanzania (URT), and in
particular Arusha and TAEC.

It is my hope that with the assistance of our Course Coordinator
and the New Safari Hotel you will remain healthy and enjoy your
stay in Arusha. Kindly feel comfortable and at home; and that if you
experience any problem, please do not hesitate to contact any of us
for a solution.

It is also extremely gratifying to note that the thirty (30) participants
to this workshop from eleven (11) African English speaking
countries here with us today have a key role in the denial or delay
of shipment of radioactive Materials in their respective countries,
and therefore will greatly benefit from this workshop.


                                                                        4
Secondly, on behalf of the Government of the United Republic of
Tanzania, and the Tanzania Atomic Energy Commission, I would
like to thank the IAEA for choosing Tanzania, to organize, and
implement this workshop, I also thank the IAEA for providing the
necessary financial support.

Ladies and Gentlemen:

The safe and efficient transport of radioactive materials is vital to
many aspects of the modern life because radioactive materials are
needed for various applications ranging from the generation of
electricity, to health, water resources management, scientific
research, and agriculture just to mention a few. All these
applications are becoming increasingly global in terms of both
products and services. Maintaining safe and secure national and
international transport systems by all modes is highly essential to
support these.        Beneficial applications for social economic
development.

Transportation of radioactive materials is governed by national and
international regulations which are based on the IAEA’s
Regulations for the Safe Transport of Radioactive Materials that
have been continuously revised and updated over the past four
decades by experts from the Member states of IAEA in order to
ensure high standards of safety. The safety and security record of
these shipments is impressive; and that over the last 45 years,
there has never been an incident which has given rise to significant
radiological damage to man or the environment. Despite this
excellent safety and security record, there has been an increasing
number of denials and delays of shipment of radioactive materials
from some shipping companies, air carriers, consignors and port
authorities even when there was compliance with regulations by
imposing additional constraints and conditions on shipment of
radioactive materials.


Ladies and Gentlemen:

The denials or delays of transportation of radioactive materials can
adversely affect various applications, including medical treatment
and diagnoses, construction projects, sterilization of health
products, scientific research and development, industrial activities ,
etc. For instance delays of shipment of radioactive materials for
medical use and industrial use can result in hardships to many
patients undergoing diagnosis and treatment with radioactive
materials and to others who rely on products sterilized by radiation.

Delays or refusals of transport of radioactive materials might have
significant impact to users of radioisotopes with very short half –life;
and that any interruption to their delivery can render them
ineffective. For instance Iodine-131 has a half-life of eight days and
is used in diagnosing and treating thyroid disorders. Impediments to
the timely transport of radioactive materials is not only time
consuming, costly and inconvenient, it can in some circumstances
increase the risks for radiation hazards. In view of the above, there
is an urgent need for a universally accepted approach to solving
this problem.

I am glad that there is a growing recognition, internationally of the
problems created by shipment denials or delays; and that these are
now being addressed in a more concerted way by various
organizations such as the International Atomic Energy Agency
(IAEA) and the World Nuclear Transport Institute (WNTI). As a
result of this the IAEA formulated a Steering Committee on Denial
of Shipments of Radioactive materials which intends to seek
solutions and promote awareness of the issue.

As such the IAEA has planned to conduct a number of workshops
world- wide in order to come up with solutions to the problem and
raise awareness on the issue. I have been informed that a similar
workshops to this one year were conducted in Montevideo,
Uruguay in July, 2007 for Latin American Countries; Rome, Italy,
14-16 May, 2008 for the Mediterranean Basin Countries. A similar
workshop is being conducted parallel to this workshop in Beijing,
China for Asian countries, and that another one will be conducted in
Antananarivo, Madagascar for African French speaking countries
from 23-25 June, 2008.

Ladies and Gentlemen:

By now, we are all aware that the main objective of this workshop is
to raise awareness of all parties concerned, i.e. suppliers, receipts,
regulators, public authorities, carriers/consignors and international
organizations of the problems associated with denial of shipment of
radioactive material with a view to determine effective measures


                                                                       6
that are necessary to prevent or reduce the instances of denials or
delays in the Countries of these broad geographical areas.

I have been informed that the workshop is aiming at providing ,
discussing and clarifying information including experience, lessons
learned and strategies for addressing the matters on the issue of
delays and denials of shipment of radioactive material.

It is my hope that participants to this workshop will come up with
better strategic plans to prevent or reduce instances of delays or
denial of shipment; and to alleviate if possible complete the the
hardships to users of radioactive material that have been denied or
delayed; determine the milestones in the implementation of the
action plan; Identify specific role that could be played by each
participant.

As such Ladies and Gentlemen, I would like to earnestly appeal to
all the participants of this workshop to highly commit themselves to
learn or contribute much as possible throughout the workshop and
thereafter to ensure that they use what they have learnt to get
solutions in order that unnecessary delays or denials of shipment of
radioactive materials do not occur in their respective countries.

It is my hope that the IAEA, through its Representative and
Resource Persons here with us today, will consider the
implementation of the outcomes of this workshops; in order that we
can raise the required awareness of the problems associated with
denials of shipment of radioactive materials; and delays or
implement effective measures to prevent or reduce the number of
delays or denials.

Ladies and Gentlemen:

I wish to conclude my opening remarks by re-iterating my earnest
appeal to all of you Participants to this workshop, to whole
heartedly commit and dedicate yourselves to the deliberations of
this crucial workshop on ways to prevent or reduce instances of
denials of shipments and to alleviate the hardships to users of
radioactive material that have been denied or delayed for the
benefit of AFRICA and the International Community as a whole.

I now take the pleasure and honour bestowed upon me to declare
this workshop officially opened.
Thank you all for your very kind attention, and I wish you all a
successful workshop.




                                                               8
                              ANNEX 4
                   Opening remarks by Mr. Bruno


Distinguished representatives of the 11 Member Sates,
International Organizations and Associations (IATA, WNTI),
distinguished members of the Steering Committee on denials of
shipments, distinguished representatives of the Tanzania Atomic
Energy Commission, dear colleagues, ladies and gentlemen. It is a
real pleasure for me, on behalf of the International Atomic Energy
Agency, to be able to take this opportunity to welcome each of you
here today in the city of Arusha, and to formally open this
REGIONAL WORKSHOP ON DENIAL OF SHIPMENTS OF
RADIOACTIVE MATERIAL FOR THE AFRICAN ENGLISH
SPEAKING COUNTRIES. I thank you very much for accepting our
invitation to participate in this important event aiming at stimulating
the discussion among all of you with a view to better understanding
the reasons and the implications associated with denial of and
delay in shipment of radioactive material and also at identifying
measures suitable to reduce and hopefully eliminate instances of
denials of shipment of radioactive material in your region.
We all know that delays in and denials of shipments of radioactive
material for medical use can result in hardships to patients
undergoing diagnosis and treatment with radioactive material and
to others, who rely on products sterilized by radiation. More
recently, in the light of high expectation of revitalization of nuclear
energy development and expected significant increase in non
nuclear power applications, indications of denials of shipment have
increased the concerns of the nuclear and other industries. Thus
there continues to be an urgent need for effective communication
and increased awareness of all stakeholders on an informed
approach reflecting the continuous high level of safety and security
performance during transport.

Since we have started our work in this area of denials of shipment,
we have been joined by the International Maritime Organization and
the UN’s Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) in approving
resolutions committing Member States to examine the problem and
work with their UN Organizations to minimize the effect of a denial.
Steering Committee
In September 2005, the General Conference of the Agency asked
the Secretariat to establish the International Steering Committee on
Denial of Shipments of Radioactive Material. This resolution was
reaffirmed in 2006 and 2007.

At its first meeting in November 2006 the Steering Committee
established an Action Plan. This Action Plan indicates actions, the
Committee member who would take the action and the date by
which the action would be accomplished. The Steering Committee,
at its second meeting in June 2007 and its third meeting in January
this year, noted that substantial progress had been made in
implementing the Action Plan. Additionally, to obtain direct
evidence of a denial and its cause, the SC urged all Member States
and International Organisations to inform concerned stakeholders
of the denial database working process and encourage inputs from
industry and others.

In September 2007 the Steering Committee had a very successful
booth at the Agency’s 51st General Conference specifically to make
the delegates aware of the issues related to denial of shipment.
The booth attracted strong support for the need for an enhanced,
coordinated approach. Mr. Edlow, Chair of the Steering Committee,
Agency staff and other participants in Steering Committee activities
were at the booth.
Action Plan

To satisfy its commitments under the Action Plan, the Agency has
accomplished a number of tasks since the establishment of the SC.
The Agency has now begun to input information into the denial of
shipments database. Although we have received some reports, we
are encouraged that industry and Member States are working
together to obtain information that will facilitate a better
understanding of the problem of denials. Where we now have
anecdotal evidence, reports will provide us with specific data to
substantiate the anecdotal information.

In November 2007 the Agency asked its Member States to
nominate a National Focal Point for Denial of Shipments of
Radioactive Material. In a separate correspondence the Agency
requested Member States to provide information on Competent
Authorities for transport and the national legislation governing
transport safety at the governmental level. Finally, in July 2007 the


                                                                    10
Agency conducted its first Workshop on Denial of Shipments of
Radioactive Material in Montevideo, Uruguay. You will have today a
comprehensive presentation on the progress so far achieved in
Latin America as a result of very active network created during the
workshop Uruguay. To further this communication, improve
awareness and find regional solutions to denial of shipments, the
Agency is conducting, starting today, the regional workshop on
denial of shipments of radioactive material for the English speaking
countries in Africa and another regional workshop in China, for Asia
and the Pacific region. Next month similar event will be held in
Madagascar for French speaking countries.
These actions substantially complete the Agency’s commitments as
identified in the initial Action Plan and following recommendations
form its General Conference resolutions.
Workshops

Now I would like to provide a little more detail about the Agency’s
achievements particularly as they relate to the Workshops, data
collection and regional networks.

In July 2007 the Agency conducted a Workshop in Montevideo,
Uruguay. At this Workshop the participants agreed to:

• Disseminate the results from the Steering Committee and get
  engagement at national level;
• Continue the communication among the participants;
• Create a regional data bank on delays of and denials in
  shipments;
• Provide continuous information to the Steering Committee on
  instances of denials and delays and regional actions and results;
  and

• Establish a protocol among Latin America countries by which
  information on shipments can be provided in advance and then
  avoid problems.

Subsequent to the Workshop, the so called       “Montevideo Group”
has developed a regional network specifically   to address denial of
shipment. I would like to stress again that      one of the outputs
expected from this workshop is to establish a   regional Action Plan
and a regional network based on the successful model of the
Montevideo workshop.
Data Collection

While Workshops provide us with the opportunity to share
experiences and to disseminate good practices, the database on
denial of shipments will provide the mechanism for identifying and
analyzing the information and identifying issues and trends in a
consistent and reliable manner. The Agency, along with our UN
partners, International Maritime Organization and the International
Civil Aviation Organization, has implemented a database and a
programme of collection of data. This data will provide us with
specific information on the cause of a denial or a delay. In this
manner we can obtain concrete and comprehensive facts on
denials and delays rather than anecdotal data. This information will
permit us to support enhanced activities within our activities.
National Focal Points in our Member States will be our chief allies
to obtaining reliable data for our database.

Regional Networks

We also want to continue and expand on the success of the Latin
America regional network of governments and industry
representatives in discussing and resolving denial problems. In light
of the international character of this issue, we feel that regional
networks have a key role in engaging all of the appropriate regional
players and specifically the National Focal Points. Prevention and
early response to potential instances is vitally important to minimize
social and economic impacts and possible recurrences. The
regional networks will be able to identify regional issues and
potentially resolve issues before they become an actual instance of
denial. The regional networks will keep the Steering Committee
informed of its activities.
Communication of Activities

Let me emphasize that communication will be our strongest tool for
preventing instances of denials. Successful communication
amongst the Steering Committee members, the UN Transport
Organisations, the regional networks and the National Focal Points
will inevitably lead to an excellent understanding of the problem and
the sustainability of shipments of radioactive material. If we fail in
communication, we will have failed to provide the world populations


                                                                     12
with the access they need to medical, industrial and power
application of nuclear and radioactive material. Furthermore,
communication with our General Conference and the Board of
Governors will also be important for obtaining continued
endorsement and support from our Member States. Inevitably, the
commitments for new activities will need Board and Member States
approvals for the needed resources that we will need to continue
our efforts. In view of strict zero-growth budgets, extra budgetary
and in kind contributions will be most welcome from Member States
and other stakeholders concerned with the issue of denials.

Closing
We need the Member States, International Organizations and
Associations and the industry to be very proactive in denial
activities and we want your commitments to resolving these
problems. The later our response to addressing an issue, the more
time and resources will be needed to solve the issue. In this respect
the year, 2008, is a crucial year for containment of the denial
problem as we will have all regional networks in operation. Early
preventative actions on your part, the SC, the Agency, the
International Organizations and Associations and the Industry are
crucial if we are to sustain our successes in reducing the instances
of denial.
Let me remark again that it should be appreciated by all concerned
that there has been no significant accident from transport of
radioactive material over the past half century. We should not let
the issue of denial of shipments of radioactive material render
ineffective the good work that has been done for over a half century
to ensure this great record. Let me challenge you to commit to
establishing and implementing your action plan and running your
network so that we will be able to make a real change.
Again, the Agency is very grateful for the time and the effort you
have, all of you, given to travel here to this meeting and we look
forward to your active participation and concrete outputs. The
success of this workshop is in no small way due to all the good
arrangements and effective support from

Mr. Abraham M. Nyanda – Director General of the Tanzania Atomic
Energy Commission

The staff of TAEC
Mr. Justin Ngaile – Course Coordinator

Mr. Karol Skornik from IAEA.
I also would like to sincerely thank Mr. Jeremy Rolstone, from the
United Kingdom Department for Transport, for accepting to chair
this workshop.
I wish you all a very productive workshop and thank you for your
attention.
