SECURITY PROGRAMS FOR CATEGORY I OR II NUCLEAR MATERIAL OR CERTAIN NUCLEAR FACILITIES PURPOSE The purpose of this regulatory guide is to help applicants for a Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) licence in respect of Category I or II nuclear material — other than.

Nuclear Safeguards, Security and Nonproliferation: Achieving Security with Technology and Policy, Second Edition is a comprehensive reference covering the cutting-edge technologies used to trace, track and safeguard nuclear material.

With hundreds of nuclear power reactors, research reactors and fuel cycle facilities in operation worldwide, nuclear terrorism and other nuclear security threats demand continuous attention. The IAEA helps to ensure that measures are taken to control and protect nuclear facilities.

physical protection of nuclear material and facilities, measures against unauthorized removal of nuclear materials, and protection of nuclear material and facilities from sabotage. INFCIRC/ provides basic international guidance for physical protection of nuclear material and facilities.

• Variable implementation across states may compromise. Nuclear material accounting and control (NMAC) measures are designed to protect nuclear facilities and nuclear material from adversaries such as non-State actors both inside and outside the nuclear facility.

This publication focuses on measures to prevent and mitigate the risk posed by insider threats. Over the past several years, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has been working on a definition of 'nuclear security culture' so that it can be used as a tool to improve the physical protection of nuclear materials and facilities.

A IAEA report titled 'Fundamental Principles of Physical Protection of Nuclear Materials and Nuclear Facilities' identified security culture as one. G, Security Programs for Category I or II Nuclear Material or Certain Nuclear Facilities Purpose of G G helps applicants for a CNSC licence, in respect of Category I or II nuclear material – other than a licence to transport – or a nuclear facility consisting of a nuclear.

9 sti/pub/ (39 pp.; ). 10 CFR Part 37—Physical Protection of Category 1 and Category 2 Quantities of Radioactive Material On Mathe NRC published the new 10 CFR Part 37 final rule in the Federal Register (78 FR ). The new regulation establishes security requirements for the use and transport of the most risk-significant quantities of radioactive materials (i.e., International Atomic Energy Agency.

Special nuclear material (SNM) is a term used by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission of the United States to classify fissile materials. The NRC divides special nuclear material into three main categories, according to the risk and potential for its direct use in a clandestine nuclear weapon or for its use in the production of nuclear material for use in a nuclear weapon.

The Section’s activities include developing nuclear security guidance consistent with relevant binding and non-binding international legal instruments in the area of regulation, assessment, protection, transport, accounting and control of nuclear and other radioactive material and security culture, as well as assisting Member States in implementing the nuclear security framework.

In terrorists' hands, weapons-grade nuclear material--known as Category I special nuclear material when in specified forms and quantities--can be used to construct an improvised nuclear device capable of producing a nuclear explosion.

Responsibility for the security of Category I special nuclear material is divided between the Department of Energy (DOE) and the Nuclear. This discussion paper seeks feedback on G, Transportation Security Programs for Category I, II or III Nuclear Material, and G, Security Programs for Category I or II Nuclear Material or Certain Nuclear Facilities, from licensees, the Canadian public and other stakeholders.

It also outlines proposed changes to the material in G and G. cyber security requirements for certain nuclear fuel cycle facility (FCF) licensees in order to address safety and security consequences of concern.

Potentially affected licensees include certain FCFs authorized to possess Category I, II, or III quantities of special nuclear material and uranium hexafluoride conversion and deconversion facilities.

Material licensees have the primary responsibility to maintain the security and accountability of the radioactive material in their possession. While the events of Septem put new emphasis on security to prevent the malicious use.

The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) is an independent federal government agency that regulates the use of nuclear energy and material to protect health, safety, security and the environment and to respect Canada&rsquo:s international commitments on the peaceful use of nuclear energy.

• Acquiring weapons‐useable nuclear material is the key step in constructing a nuclear weapon. • Weapons ‐usable nuclear material exists at hundreds of sites in 25 countries. • Not all sites are well secured against terrorists or criminals and nuclear security is only as strong as the weakest link.

Key Control. (1) Every licensee shall maintain records of all devices, including keys and locks, whether electronic or manual, used to control access to protected, inner or vital areas or to Category I, II or III nuclear material.

(2) The records shall list all devices and their combinations, if any, that have been issued, the date of issue and the individuals to whom they were issued. categories: •Nuclear Security Fundamentals contain objectives, concepts and principles of nuclear security and provide the basis for security recommendations.

The focus of this publication is on nuclear security of nuclear material and nuclear. the 9 facilities throughout the lifetime of such a facility, and the approaches described may be used.

terrorist groups are actively seeking nuclear material for nuclear or radiological weapons. A slew of initiatives to strengthen international governance of nuclear security were taken after Despite all these developments, new concerns have been raised in recent years because of the expected global resur-gence of nuclear power.

For certain nuclear facilities, such as Category I or II facilities, t he DOE specifies the level of system effectiveness required by the facility.

The plan defines how the PPS achieves the required level of system effectiveness against threats described in the DBT. For Category III facilities, DOE. Recommendation: To ensure that the global initiative to remove and secure vulnerable nuclear materials achieves its stated goals of securing the most vulnerable nuclear materials and ensure that U.S.

agencies are able to secure as much vulnerable nuclear material as possible, and to ensure that Category I and Category II U.S.-origin nuclear material is protected in accordance with.

After World War II, Sweden considered building nuclear weapons to defend themselves against an offensive assault from the Soviet to the government ran a clandestine nuclear weapons program under the guise of civilian defense research at the Swedish National Defence Research Institute (FOA).

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is requesting comments on a draft regulatory basis to support the potential amendments to revise a number of existing security-related regulations relating to physical protection of special nuclear material (SNM) at NRC-licensed facilities and in transit, as well as the fitness for duty programs for.
