Explanatory notes to each item of the standard document Sections A-1 to A-6 and B-1 to B-6:

Definition of a duly completed application: an application for the authorisation of a shipment of radioactive waste or spent fuel is duly completed in accordance with Directive 2006/117/Euratom, if – in case of shipments of radioactive waste – each item of Section A-1, or – in case of shipments of spent fuel – each item of Section B-1, contains the required information, either by ticking the relevant box, deleting (= crossing out) the non-applicable option or filling in the relevant data and values. In case of an application for several shipments, items 8 and 9 may contain estimates.

1. The applicant must duly complete all items 1 to 14. In item 1 tick one of the boxes as applicable to define the type of shipment and fill in the relevant frontier posts in case third countries are concerned in the shipment:

(a) tick type MM for shipments between Member States, eventually passing through one or more other Member States or third countries;

(b) tick type IM for shipments from a third country to a Member State (= import into the Community), bearing in mind, that the application must include evidence that the consignee has made an arrangement with the holder established in the third country, and which has been accepted by the competent authority of that third country, obliging that holder to take back the radioactive waste or spent fuel where a shipment cannot or may not be completed;

(c) tick type ME for shipments from a Member State to a third Country (= export from the Community); or

(d) tick type TT for shipments from one third country to another third country passing one or more Member States, bearing in mind that the application must include evidence that the consignee established in the third country has made an arrangement with the holder established in the third country, and accepted by the competent authority of that third country, obliging that holder to take back radioactive waste or spent fuel where a shipment cannot or may not be completed.

2. By ticking the relevant box, the applicant must state clearly whether the application covers only one shipment within a period of time (e.g. 05/2010, 2009 or 2010-2011) or whether the application covers more than one shipment within a period of time, but not more than a period of three years from the date of authorisation. A single application may be sent in respect of more than one shipment, provided the following conditions are met as set out in Article 6(2) of the Directive 2006/117/Euratom:

(a) the radioactive waste or spent fuel to which it relates essentially has the same physical, chemical and radioactive characteristics; and

(b) the shipments are to be made from the same holder to the same consignee and involve the same competent authorities; and

(c) where the shipments involve transit through third countries, such transit is made via the same frontier post of entry to and/or exit from the Community and via the same frontier post(s) of the third country or countries concerned, unless otherwise agreed between the competent authorities concerned.

3. The applicant must fill in the relevant frontier posts in case one or more third countries are concerned in the shipment. These frontier posts must be identical for all shipments covered by the application unless otherwise agreed by the competent authorities.

4. The applicant must fill in his/her trade name, address and contact details. The trade name, also known as a trading name or a business name, is the name which a business trades under for commercial purposes, although its registered, legal name, used for contracts and other formal situations, may be another.

(b) the consignee in case of an import into the Community from a third country (type IM);

(c) the person responsible for the shipment in the Member State by which the radioactive waste or spent fuel enters the Community in case of a transit through the Community (type TT).

5. The applicant must fill in the trade name, address and contact details of the location, where the radioactive waste or spent fuel is held before the shipment, which can be different from the address of the applicant.

6. The applicant must fill in the trade name, address and contact details of the consignee. In case of shipment type IM, this information is identical with item 4.

7. The applicant must fill in the trade name, address and contact details of the location, where the radioactive waste or spent fuel will be held after the shipment, which can be different from the address of the consignee.

8. The applicant must complete all fields either by ticking the appropriate box (more than one answer is possible) or filling in the specific characteristics and values of the radioactive waste or spent fuel. These values may be estimates in case of several shipments.

9. The applicant must complete item 9, the values may be estimates.

10. The applicant must tick and define the type of activity giving rise to the radioactive waste or spent fuel and tick the appropriate box(es) or specify any other activity. More than one answer is possible.
