Dangerous Goods Radiation Protection Programme

The transport of radioactive material as cargo must be subject to a Radiation Protection Programme (RPP), which must consist of systematic arrangements aimed at providing adequate consideration of radiation protection measures.

Operators that hold a dangerous goods approval and permit the transport of radioactive material should identify their RPP document reference and location within their Operations Manual, Part A, Section 9. The specimen operations manual entries published on the CAA website have been updated to refer to the need for an RPP. AOC holders should draft amendments to their operations manual to include a reference to their RPP and send to NPA@caa.co.uk with a completed form SRG 1832.
