Transport and logistics is collecting knowledge about the many small and big obstacles to rapid transfer of radioactivity between the PRISMAP partners. At present the focus is on the transport to ARRONAX in France of Cu-64 samples for the intercomparison tests. Negotiations with airlines, transport companies, handling agents and authorities are under way to clarify the possibilities for short-term exceptions and also more general solutions in the future. When off-line mass separation is to be used regularly there is a double pressure on the rapid transfer, as activity first needs to go from reactor/cyclotron to the mass separator, and then from the separator to the end user.

An interim report describing the present transport situation will be delivered within the next few months.
