International Newsbriefs: IAEA Annual Report for 1995


The IAEA has included its recent efforts to address illicit nuclear trafficking in its 1995 Annual Report. In 1995, the IAEA established a database of incidents of nuclear trafficking, to provide information to IAEA member states and the public at large. In addition, the IAEA conducted training courses for workers at nuclear facilities and coordinated technical support for physical protection improvements in a number of its member states. The latter two activities seek to address the physical source of the problem, and should help to prevent diversion of nuclear materials from facilities.
