Asia Regional Transport Security Series

The Asia Regional Transportation Security Series (ARTSS) seeks to increase awareness of the specific threats and risks associated with the transport of nuclear and other radioactive materials. The Series is designed to promote regional dialogue throughout the Asia region about the need to secure these materials during transport. The Series is hosted by the United States Department of Energy, National Nuclear Security Administration.

Each session features panel discussions with breakout rooms to explore emerging threats, critical weaknesses in current transport practices, successful transport security practices, and other related national and/or regional issues.



  • Competent Authorities
  • Regulatory organizations with responsibilities that may involve transport for Class 7 dangerous goods
  • National security, law enforcement, or response organizations who are responsible for developing and implementing security-related policies and procedures that govern the transportation of nuclear and radioactive materials
  • Other governmental agencies that have a role in oversight, threat assessments, or response to a malicious event during transport

The following practitioners are also invited to attend and share diverse perspectives that help enrich dialogue and strengthen the sense of community: representatives from Ministries of Foreign Affairs, private operators, carriers, shippers/receivers, and industry representatives.
