EEAE licenses the bodies transporting radioactive materials and publishes the information governing their activity. The licenses awarded by the EEAE are classified as follows:
General license: It is awarded to transport agencies which constantly perform transports of radioactive materials. General licenses remain in force for one year and are renewed upon an application submitted by the transport agency one month before its expiry.
Individual license: It is awarded to transport agencies which perform individual transfers of radioactive materials.
Special license: It is awarded in any case of a frequent transfer of specific radioactive materials, taking into account the radioactivity, the type of sources (orphan-sealed), dispersion risks and their special characteristics (fissile, flammable explosives, corrosive and toxic).
