The Radioactive Material Transport Users Committee (RAMTUC) is an industry group formed in the 1960s to develop strategy and policy regarding the regulations for the safe transport of radioactive material, both for transporting materials involved in the nuclear fuel cycle and transporting materials outside the fuel cycle, such as radio-pharmaceutical products. RAMTUC is constituted under a memorandum of understanding and is a self funded and is a self managed forum by its members. RAMTUC sponsors a number of specialist sub-groups and holds its main members meetings quarterly. All forum management is carried out via this web site.

RAMTUC’s management structure is made representatives from the UK’s key nuclear organisations based in the UK who are involved in the transport of radioactive material and a small group of RAMTUC funded contractors operating as part time consultants specialising in regulatory and legal matters from issues arising from the transport of radioactive material.
RAMTUC is dedicated to providing a platform for UK industry to form a united approach to national and international regulatory bodies, raising the profile of the industry sector and assisting national authorities in the development of national and international regulations. RAMTUC encourages a single approach to processes and practices involved in the transport of radioactive material. RAMTUC values open and constructive communication and welcomes enquires or feedback from any organisations connected to the transport of radioactive material wishing to share best practice or seek best practice through RAMTUC
