Release of the NTI Radiological Security Progress Report
The Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI) has recently released its Radiological Security Progress Report.
The NTI Radiological Security Progress Report reviews progress that the 23 states have made in meeting their commitments in accordance with the 2014 Nuclear Security Summit (NSS) Joint Statement on Enhancing Radiological Security. Those commitments include a pledge to secure their Category 1 materials by the end of 2016 and to implement other commitments to improve radiological security.
Information for the report was primarily drawn from responses by the 23 states to an NTI questionnaire, 2014 NSS documents, the International Atomic Energy Agency’s (IAEA) Code of Conduct Technical and Review Meetings, Nuclear Security Summit National Progress Report Statements, and other IAEA reports.
In developing the NTI Radiological Security Progress Report, NTI convened an international panel of advisors to review and provide input to validate the Radiological Security Progress Report methodology. This group of 12 highly respected nuclear and radiological security experts advised NTI on the framework for producing a radiological report, an agreed set of key performance indicators that were used to develop a self-assessment questionnaire, and the rating system. Input from the panel was instrumental in ensuring that the Radiological Security Progress Report has an international point of view and reflects the ongoing international discussion on radiological security priorities.
