Workshop on the Security of Radioactive Sources - The Road to Sustainability and Resilience

23-Jan-2018 - 24-Jan-2018 Stockholm, Sweden
Workshop on autonomous and remotely operated systems: Benefits and challenges to nuclear security

Background

The Swedish Radiation Safety Authority (SSM) and WINS conducted an International Best Practice Workshop on the Security of Radioactive Sources - The Road to Sustainability and Resilience.

Overview

This workshop provided a forum in which stakeholders from countries with mature regulatory regimes can discuss the current status of their security arrangements for high activity radioactive sources, especially in regard to the management of sustainability and the resilience of sources to the threat. In addition, participants had the opportunity to reflect on what still needs to be done and to share their experiences, perspectives and lessons learned.

Objectives

This workshop enabled participants to:

  • Review the different mechanisms for achieving source security and reducing radiological security risks (security regulations, use of best practices, security by design, alternative technologies, etc).
  • Assess the status of the respective legislative and regulatory frameworks. Identify remaining challenges and possible solutions.
  • Share and discuss lessons learned from implementing security measures for sources.
  • Assess the level of security culture amongst licensees and explore options to ensure sustainable security arrangements.
  • Learn about evolutions and changes in the use of sources and the availability of new technologies. Discuss incentives for the adoption of alternative technologies.
  • Explore options to encourage stakeholders and regulators to share their experiences more broadly with other regional partners and countries.
  • Review the role of INFCIRC 910 and encourage further countries to sign up.

Audience

Increasing radioactive source sustainability and resilience to threat requires close communication and cooperation among a wide range of international stakeholders, including regulators, licensees, security vendors, researchers, law enforcement and international organisations.

Delegates from the following countries were invited to attend this event: European Union Members, Norway, Switzerland, United States, Canada, Japan, Korea, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand, Israel, UAE, Qatar, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and Bahrain
