Laura Holgate, Vice President for Materials Risk Management at the Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI), recognized four models for sustainable radiological security at the NTI-hosted reception at the IAEA’s International Conference on the Security of Radioactive Material.  The four award recipients are:

  • China State Nuclear Security Technology Center (SNSTC) for sustainable security in training and capacity-building in knowledge and expertise.  This Center of Excellence meets China’s domestic nuclear security training requirements and serves as an international venue for exchanges and cooperation.
  • Government of France for its leadership on cesium-137 phase-out and for sustaining commitments from the Nuclear Security Summit process.
  • New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene for its outstanding work to phase out cesium sources and achieve sustainable security through permanent risk reduction.
  • Central Asian participants in the Regional Dialogue on Radiological Security Prevention and Detection for improving regional cooperation: Bauyrzhan Mukanov (Kazakhstan Committee for Atomic and Energy Supervision and Control of the Ministry of Energy), Marat Isakov (Kyrgyz Republic State Inspectorate on Environmental and Technical Safety), Baigabyl Tolongutov (Kyrgyz Republic Centre of the State Regulation in the Sphere of Environmental Protection and Ecological Safety), Holbay Halilov (Uzbekistan State Inspectorate for Atomic Oversight) and Ilkhom Mirsaidov (Tajikistan Nuclear and Radiation Safety Agency).
