A working group (TC85/SC5/WG 10) has been formed by ISO for the drafting of an international standard covering the leak testing of radioactive material transport containers. A certain number of fundamental principles have been identified by the group and are the subject of general agreement amongst its members, which has made it possible to freeze the overall layout of the document. Much use has been made of ANSI standard N 14.5, and material of other origins was also taken into consideration. A draft version of this standard has been submitted to the competent authorities and a number of potential users for information and assessment.
