This paper describes an overview of the development of U.S. regulations for the transportation of radioactive materials over the past 40 years. In general, the primary focal points are multifaceted. In particular, however, this rather complex approach has been reduced to two major topical areas: 1) The detailed interactions that have long been in place between the U.S. Regulatory agencies involved, i.e., the older U.S. Interstate Commerce Commission and its more modern counterpart, the U.S. Department of Transportation, and the older U.S. Atomic Energy Agency and its more modern counterpart, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission; and 2) the detailed interactions that have long been in place between the U.S. Regulatory agencies and those of the International Atomic Energy Agency. Although the primary time period covered in this work will be between 1965 and 2004, some of the discussion, by necessity, dates back to 1958.
