Tribal Radioactive Materials Transportation Committee (TRMTC)

TRMTC members and staff in Scottsdale, Arizona for the 2020 TRMTC Midyear Meeting


The Tribal Radioactive Materials Transportation Committee (TRMTC) consists of representatives from 21 Native American tribes throughout the United States that are or may be impacted by U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) activities relating to the transport of radioactive waste and materials, including spent nuclear fuel. 

TRMTC meets semi-annually to discuss topics relevant to the National Transportation Stakeholders Forum (NTSF). NTSF is the mechanism through which DOE communicates at a national level with tribes and states about the shipments of radioactive waste and materials. NTSF meetings focus specifically on discussing packaging and transportation, emergency management, security, inspection and enforcement, and radiation protection. TRMTC meetings provide an opportunity for participating tribes to interact with DOE headquarters senior-level staff, other federal agencies, state representatives, industry, and interested parties involved in the transportation of radioactive materials, including spent nuclear fuel.


The mission of TRMTC is to provide DOE with Tribal input on programs and activities related to the transportation and storage of radioactive materials and spent nuclear fuel.
