Central Asia and Azerbaijan Transport Security Dialog

An interactive virtual forum

Weekly sessions begin April 14, 2022

One meeting a week for 8 meetings

The Central Asia and Azerbaijan Regional Transport Security Dialog (CAARTSD) seeks to increase awareness of the specific threats and risks associated with the transport of nuclear and other radioactive materials within the region.

This virtual series is jointly hosted by the International Science and Technology Center (ISTC) and The National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) of the United States of America. It is designed to promote regional dialogue about the need to secure these materials during transport.

Sessions feature panel discussions with group discussions 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.

Please Note: some or all of the session will be recorded.
