IAEA Releases Primer on Regulation of Nuclear Materials
The guide, Security of Radioactive Sources, is an aggregation of insights collected from experts and governments around the world. In a release, the agency said it hopes the series will assist policymakers in writing rules that conform to its Code of Conduct on the Safety and Security of Radioactive Sources and the International Convention for the Suppression of Acts of Nuclear Terrorism.
"By setting guidance on the security of sources, the publication is expected to serve as a useful tool for legislators and regulators, physical protection specialists and facility and transport operators, as well as law enforcement officers," the agency said in the release (International Atomic Energy Agency release, July 24).
