BPG 5.8 Security of Radioactive Sources Used in Industrial Radiation Processing

WINS 11 Mar 2020

This joint WINS and International Irradiation Association (iia) Best Practice Guide has been developed to provide a reference that supplements international recommendations and enhances security requirements prescribed by national regulation for gamma irradiation facilities.

The guide aims to help you—as a business leader, radiation safety officer, security specialist, radioactive source user or other stakeholder with responsibility for the management or security of gamma irradiation facilities —understand and manage the security risk. It aims to define the threat and responsibilities of the various stakeholders, provide practical advice on physical protection systems and security management, discuss the importance of security culture and take a whole-life approach towards radioactive sources that includes planning for their end-of-life management.
