DOT/PHMSA RIN: 2137-AF42 Publication ID: Spring 2022 
Title: Hazardous Materials: Compatibility With the Regulations of the International Atomic Energy Agency 

In coordination with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, this rulemaking would harmonize the Hazardous Materials Regulations for packaging and transportation of radioactive material with the international safety regulations, "Specific Safety Requirements No. SSR-6, 'Regulations for the Safe Transport of Radioactive Material,'" published by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in 2012 Edition (SSR-6) and in the 2018 Edition (SSR-6, Rev.-1). Specifically, this rulemaking would add a new category of Surface Contaminated Objects (SCO-III) for large solid objects, which due to their size and weight cannot reasonably be transported in a package. These provisions would provide an enhanced level of safety while removing regulatory burden on industry stakeholders.
